Barcelona star Messi tells Liverpool: Be humane and let Mascherano go
Messi believes Liverpool now have no choice but to let Barca talk to his fellow countryman.
The Barca star said: "Javier won't play for the club again, I can assure you of that, and I think the Liverpool coach knows that now.
"Javier's family are unhappy and the pressure of seeing that is making him depressed.
"Liverpool must act humanely and let him go."
