Real Madrid are reported to have won the race for Argentine starlet Javier Mascherano.

The dynamic River Plate midfielder has come to prominence over the last season starring for both club and country.

Arsenal were one of the first to make moves for him and he was believed to be the man Arsene Wenger wanted to replace Patrick Vieira - when it looked like he would be leaving Highbury in the summer.

Once Vieira decided to stay with The Gunners, Wenger's interest cooled which then allowed a host of Europe's elite to battle for Mascherano's signature.

Internazionale entered the bidding only this month, but by then it was a straight fight between Spanish titans Real, Barcelona and Deportivo La Courna.

According to Spanish sources, Real have now won the battle after agreeing terms with River on a deal reportedly worth up to $20 million.

to be honest, i dont know they player, but i guess with such big teams chasing him, and with arsenal willing to take him to replace vieria at one stage, he must be good

He is a big talent, plays box to box but is in the defensive mould.
He has got flair like you would expect from a South American though.

He would be perfect for Real, and he has slotted into the national team in Simeone's place.

Don't think he has actually signed yet, I can't see anything on Real or Rivers homepages.

Who isn't Chelsea going after?


If they win the title and the champions league it will be interesting to see who they get when the season ends...
