Barcelona maintain contact with Liverpool for Mascherano

Barcelona remain keen on Liverpool midfielder Javier Mascherano.

The Daily Mail says Barca courted Mascherano a year ago and their need is greater now with defensive midfielder Yaya Toure destined to leave - with Chelsea among his admirers.

However, they know that Liverpool will be looking at close to £30million for the 25-year-old Argentina captain and that will put enormous strain on their budget as even though Toure is expected to command £20m, Arsenal would want more than £40m for Cesc Fabregas.
