Javier Mascherano joins the team
According to official sources, the move is still being discussed by the Premier League despite FIFA giving the all-clear for the 18-month loan move to be completed.
However, Mascherano was at Liverpool's Melwood training ground on Monday and coach Rafael Benitez believes it will just be a matter of time before he can hand the 22-year-old his debut.
"In fact, Mascherano is here now. We are still waiting for an answer but we think it will be okay for our new player to train with the squad. He needs to be able to train so he can be ready to play when he's needed," Benitez expressed.
