"Me to Inter? Ask Benitez. He is the one who knows more," said Mascherano
"Rafa is my teacher. I learned so much from him since I came to play in Europe.
"I am learning Italian, but I don't know anything about Inter. Does Benitez want me? You should ask him as he would know more than me."
TalksMascherano's Italian agent, Marco Piccioli indicated a move is close as he has held talks with Inter.
"There has already been a first contact with (Inter sporting director) Marco Branca," said Piccioli.
"We are evaluating the move hard and in the next few days we will have a new meeting to better establish the details of this transfer deal."
