Javier Mascherano has declared that he wants to leave Liverpool, and has spoken about the possibility of a move to Juventus.

The Argentine is undoubtedly one of the best defensive midfielders in world football, however his future at Liverpool is clouded in uncertainty.

Mascherano's contract is owned by the international fund of investors, Media Sports Investments (M.S.I), who are demanding €24m for their client to stay at Liverpool permanently.

The Anfield club's owners Tom Hicks and George Gillet are refusing to pay such a sum, thus making it inevitable that the player will leave the club.

However Mascherano has now admitted himself that he is keen to depart England.

"At Liverpool I have found my home. I am committed and I cannot complain about how the city has accepted me since I came here,†the 23-year-old told an Argentinean radio station.

“However I feel that now the time has come to move on. I would like to leave the Premiership. A move to Juventus? Well I like to travel.â€

Mascherano's agent Walter Tamer fuelled speculation yesterday when he admitted that his client was likely to be playing in Italy next season.

“Liverpool have not made any offer at all to buy Javier and it is likely that he will go to Italy next season," Tamer stated.

Juventus will complete the transfer of Momo Sissoko this Sunday for €13m, and it now seems possible that Mascherano could join him in Turin.

The Bianconeri fans have been bitterly opposed to Sissoko's transfer, however they are likely to be much more open to the possibility of Mascherano moving.

It remains to be seen if Juve's sports director Alessio Secco will listen to Mascherano's hint of a come-and-get-me plea.

It would be great if Sissoko stayed at Pool because he doesnt know how to pass a football.
Id love Masc to leave as I rate him very highly. After Gerrard and Torres he is their best player....

Funniest quote I heard today. He's only been at Anfield for a year, roughly, and all of a sudden "I think its time to move on" lol hahahahah lmao!!!

To be honest I'm very glad we didn't get Mascherano, sure he is a good tackler and has a lot of stamina, but I think he is very rash and to be honest his qualities are a bit average. Everytime I see him I thank God we got Hargreaves, who is a much better player.
