Napoli chase Barcelona star
Napoli are in the market for a defender and a midfielder, and new coach Rafa Benitez sees his former colleague Mascherano as the perfect signing given the Argentinian’s experience in both positions.
TuttoMercatoWeb report that Napoli met with the player’s entourage to discuss a move away from Spain.
Barcelona have reportedly put in a bid for Chelsea defender David Luiz, which could mean that Mascherano is on the edge of first team football and could seek a move away.
Mascherano joined Barcelona from Liverpool in 2010, and has played 83 times.
