Javier Alejandro Mascherano (born June 8, 1984 in Rosario, Santa Fe in Argentina) is a soccer player who currently plays for the Brazilian team Sport Club Corinthians Paulista as a midfielder.

While playing for Club Atlético River Plate in mid 2004, several clubs including Real Madrid and Deportivo de La Coruña declared an interest in signing Mascherano, but River Plate turned down all offers, saying that none of the interested parties were prepared to pay enough. However, Brazilian club Sport Club Corinthians Paulista acquired him from River Plate for US$ 15 Million.

Mascherano was part of the gold medal winning Argentine team at the 2004 Summer Olympics. As of 2005, has 11 caps for the Argentine side at full international level.

In 2005, he won the Campeonato Brasileiro with Corinthians, togather with Argentine teammates Carlos Tévez and Sebastián Domínguez.

In late 2005, he was linked with a move to Manchester United, a team who needs another defensive midfielder to fill in for the leave of Roy Keane. The price of bringing him to Old Trafford was estimated to be around 25 million pounds; however, nothing seems to have come of this speculation.
