Javier Mascherano returns to Liverpool training - to say that he wants to leave
The midfielder was accompanied by his agent, and the transfer have come as little surprise to the manager. Rafael Benítez, Hodgson's predecessor at Liverpool, is trying to sign the Argentinian for Internazionale and Mascherano has spent several weeks agitating for a transfer.
The agent, Walter Tamer, has stated that it would be a "dream" for his client to move to San Siro.

Mascherano, who has been unsettled at Anfield for some time, missed Liverpool's pre-season training camp because he was given time to recover from the World Cup. Hodgson is expected to demand at least £25m for the 26-year-old, who was Argentina's captain in South Africa.
