javier-mascherano-carlos-tevez_ Mascherano the Argentina captain and his international team-mate were briefly at West Ham together when they arrived in the Premier League in August 2006.

But now midfielder Mascherano, who joined Liverpool in January 2007, is aware of the speculation that he could be re-united with his striking colleague at Anfield.

Liverpool boss Rafael Benitez has been linked with a move for Tevez, whose loan deal at United ends next month.

Benitez pointedly refused to discuss names of his transfer targets after Liverpool’s final game of the season on Sunday when they beat Spurs 3-1 to clinch runners-up spot.

But there is little United boss Sir Alex Ferguson could do about such a move once the player’s loan is over.

Mascherano said: “It would be great to have Carlos here with me, I know how good he is.

“But I don’t really know what the situation is, it is certainly a difficult one.

“I don’t know exactly what is happening. The only thing I can say is that he is a great player and a great person.”

Mascherano will at least be playing in the same side as Tevez next month, when Argentina have two World Cup qualifiers against Columbia and Ecuador.

He said: “I will be with Carlos in the national team shortly, and we know we have to win important games and if we can get six points from our next two matches we will be closer to the World Cup.

“It’s important to win both games and see what happens, but obviously I want to be in South Africa for the finals next summer.”

Whether they can end up at Anfield together next season is a question for Benitez and Liverpool’s American owners.

But it is believed that Tevez does not want to move from his Cheshire home and intends staying in the Premier League if he does eventually leave Manchester United.

Mascherano admits to “not feeling good” about Liverpool’s failure to land the title.

He said: “We wanted to win the league and we were very close, but we accept that Manchester United did very well also.

“It is difficult to take, because if you look at the table and you see Liverpool with 86 points, that’s enough to win the league in many previous seasons.

“Previous champions have had less points than we had this season. But we have to improve, and we will be ready for next season after what has been a good campaign and better than the last four or five seasons beforehand.”
