Jose Reina: Liverpool goalkeeper insists he is happy at Anfield

The 31-year-old, who is under contract with the Reds until 2016, has been touted as a possible replacement for long-serving Barca goalkeeper Victor Valdes, who could leave the Spanish club this summer.

Reina, who came up through the youth ranks at the Nou Camp before joining Villarreal over a decade ago, told Cadena Ser: "I have three more years with Liverpool. I'm satisfied, comfortable and my family are very happy.

"Rumours are difficult to control but it's flattering when a club like Barca are interested in you.

"I don't know if there has been contact between the clubs or with my agent. At the moment I don't think there's anything serious."

The Spain international hopes to finish his career back in his homeland, but he added: "I don't know how long I've got left in football, what I do know is I want to enjoy what remains and feel appreciated and at Liverpool I have that."

Reina, son of former Barca goalkeeper Miguel Reina, played several first-team matches while still a teenager at Barca but left the club in 2002 without winning any major silverware.

"The years I was in Barcelona were very good. I don't have any bad feelings about not succeeding there. I played more than 50 games, when I was less than 20, it helped me grow a lot," he said.

"I would've liked to have played there more, of course, but there's no need to over-dramatise things."

ven if United were to sign CR7 & Messi to play upfront, the fact remains Fletcher and Cleverly are playing in midfield. That's where the problem is. Fletcher is too slow with an awful pass, while Cleverly is simply rubbish
