Javier Mascherano will not leave Barcelona in favour of Italy this summer, according to the player's agent.

The Argentina captain joined the Catalan club from Liverpool last summer for around £18million, but has struggled to cement a place in the starting line-up.

Italian trio Juventus, AC Milan and Roma have been linked with a move to bring the 26-year-old to Serie A, but his agent, Horacio Zandonadi, claims his client has no interest.

"Mascherano is not moving from Barcelona and there is nothing to say about him going to Italy," Zandonadi told Italian radio station Mana Mana.

"Mascherano is playing for Barcelona, the best team in the world. What else could he ask for?"

Zandonadi also suggests an offer is yet to be made from any of Italy's elite and questioned the logic of Roma's link to the player.

He added: "He wouldn't even consider his future if Juventus or AC Milan made an offer for him. As for Roma, why would they pay more than Barcelona? He is not leaving."
