Report: Luis Enrique to block Javier Mascherano move

A report claims that Barcelona boss Luis Enrique will block Napoli's attempts to sign Javier Mascherano this summer.

Barcelona boss Luis Enrique will reportedly block Napoli's attempts to sign Javier Mascherano.

The Argentine international has been strongly linked with a move to Italy in recent weeks due to his reluctance to play at centre-back for another season.

It is understood that negotiations are at an advanced stage, but according to Sport, Enrique sees the former Liverpool midfielder as a key part of his squad for the 2014-15 campaign and is ready to pull the plug.

The same report has claimed that Mascherano could sign an improved deal at the Camp Nou.

The 29-year-old's current contract in Spain expires in 2016.
