Barcelona midfielder Mascherano convinced Torres will leave Liverpool

Barcelona midfielder Javier Mascherano believes Fernando Torres could still leave Liverpool.

New Liverpool owners NESV are confident of keeping their best players.

But Mascherano says: "I have many friends now living in a strange situation. I hope that with the sale of the club things can change. Torres, Gerrard, are the stars of the Liverpool squad.

"It seems to me difficult to see them leave now and they will try to help save the team.

"I cannot guess the future of Torres, but knowing him, he could leave after this season."
