In an article from “Goal.com”, Javier Mascherano admitted being formerly approached by Inter Miami CF. And it looks like he did not believe in the challenge..
The ex Liverpool player apparently was highly courted by Beckham but he finally decided to go back to his homeland. According to Goal report, he even “snubbed” a move to MLS. He would have certainly a good addition to the team, and could have been a great mentor to the young Argentinians on Miami’s roster.
Mascherano to CNN: “I was analyzing different offers and the one from MLS seemed very interesting at the time, but in the end I chose to play in Argentina where I started my career…It was no secret that I was close to signing for Inter Miami, I mean it was almost a done deal but things can change very quickly and at the end I chose Estudiantes de la Plata.”
