Mascherano-Liverpool is a done deal, but Fifa rules prohibit it

After recent rumours linking the Argentinean West Ham midfielder to Juve, Javier Mascherano is apparently close to joining Liverpool. However, a Fifa regulation prohibits for a player to switch clubs twice in one season. Mascherano started the season at Corinthians and later joined West Ham. The bianconeri, aware of this, had asked whether his stay at Corinthians could be considered as part of the 2005-06 season, instead of the current one. The Fifa rule would stop Mascherano from leving his current club, as it states that a player cannot play for more than two clubs in one season (starting and ending on July 1st). This perhaps is what sporting director Secco referred to when he said the deal was ‘complicated’.

As it stands both the Liverpool and the Juve option would be ruled out, even though the reds have allegedly asked Fifa to make an exception. It is now looking more likely that Juve and Liverpool will try and close the deal now but for the player to change side in July.
