New AS Roma owner Thomas Di Benedetto is planning a double raid on Barcelona.

Sport says Roma's new owners are planning a major summer spending spree and have Barca midfielder Javier Mascherano and defender Gabi Milito high on their shopping list.

Argentine Milito is expected to leave the Nou Camp in the summer after struggling for first team action.
