Higuain to push Aguero out?

Gonzalo Higuain is expected to push Sergio Aguero on to the bench with a change of system, as Argentina deny a coup against Jorge Sampaoli.

It has been a disastrous World Cup so far for the Seleccion, who drew 1-1 with Iceland and lost 3-0 to Croatia.

Amid reports of a coup from players against Coach Sampaoli, even suggesting they would decide their own training schedule and starting XI for the final group game against Nigeria, there was a tense Press conference.

The midfielder is now on the verge of making his transfer to Hebei China Fortune.

“I did have the option of leaving Barcelona in 2014 and at that moment Benitez’s Napoli were an option,” Mascherano told Spanish media.

Mascherano to move to China?

Former Juventus target Javier Mascherano will reportedly leave Barcelona and move to China in January.

Now La Nación is reporting that the 33-year-old will move to Hebei China Fortune in January, for a fee of around €10m.

It’s expected Mascherano will earn around €9.5m per season in the Far East.

Maxi Lopez: 'Icardi pays for mistakes'

Torino striker Maxi Lopez reveals his belief that Mauro Icardi lacks Argentina call-ups because he 'pays for mistakes' off the field.

The 33-year-old was friends and teammates with Icardi at Sampdoria, but they had a bitter falling out when Wanda left him to marry Icardi.

She now has two children with the Inter striker and they live with her three kids by Maxi Lopez.

Mascherano to miss Juventus?

Javier Mascherano is a doubt for Barcelona-Juventus, as the Argentine missed training with a calf injury.

The Blaugrana are seeking to overturn a 3-0 deficit from the first leg in Turin, having come back from 4-0 down against Paris Saint-Germain in the previous round.

However, they may have to attempt the comeback without Mascherano, as the midfielder missed yesterday’s training session with a muscular injury.

Mascherano: ‘Nothing in Juve rumours’

Javier Mascherano insists there is no truth in rumours he could have joined Juventus - “it’s an honour to play for Barcelona”.
