English Premier League outfit FC LIVERPOOL have announced terms have been agreed to sell unsettled Argentina World Cup midfielder JAVIER MASCHERANO to Spanish Primera Division powerhouse FC BARCELONA for a reported fee of 21.0 million Euros plus perfomance bonuses, this according to Goal.com UK.

Barcelona have confirmed that a four-year contract worth roughly 90,000 English pounds per week is expected to be signed by Mascherano over the weekend, this per the Mail Online (dailymail.co.uk).

Mascherano arrived at Anfield in January of 2007 initially on loan from West Ham United and ultimately cost the Reds 18.6 million English pounds for permanent transfer; the 26-year-old sat out Liverpool’s 3-0 loss to Manchester City last Monday and had announced he would no longer suit up for the Reds in an effort to hasten his departure.

Mascherano, who has earned 62 caps (2 goals) for Argentina, came up through the youth system at River Plate and later moved to Brazilian club SC Corinthians Paulista of Sao Paulo before heading to England in the summer of 2006.

In all competitions, the ball-winning, defensive midfielder made 122 appearances for FC Liverpool and scored two goals.
