The Liverpool Echo certainly have pricked up the ears of Liverpool fans here in the Football Transfer Tavern as they comment on the future of Pepe Reina.
The Spanish goalkeeper has of course spent the season on loan at Napoli and we were pretty certain that his future at Anfield was over. However, according to the Echo, nothing is set in stone.
The publication seem to think that Reina is willing to wait and consider his future – and certainly not be rushed into making a decision that is not right for him or his family.
Barcelona had been strongly linked with a swoop for the stopper who – according to his father – would be proud to move to the Camp Nou, but Rafael Benitez would also like to consider keeping him at Napoli for a little while longer.
When asked about what he thought, the Spanish international keeper noted: “Right now I am just thinking about the national team.
“With regards to a new club, first I’ll have to talk with Liverpool.
“There’s been nothing from Barcelona. They have only just bought Ter Stegen so that position is filled. And I haven’t been in contact with Atletico Madrid. Anyway, I’m sure there’ll be desperate to keep hold of (Thibaut) Courtois.”
Liverpool fans. Would you consider taking Reina back or is it time for him to move on? Let us know your thoughts below.
