Pepe Reina: Has Barcelona in his sights

The Blaugrana are expected to need a new goalkeeper at the end of the current campaign and Reina, on loan at Napoli from Liverpool, is keen to be the chosen one.

Valdes has said that he will leave Camp Nou when his contract runs out in eight months' time and Reina is seen to be the favourite to return to Barca after leaving in 2002.

"It would be great to return to Barcelona," Reina told Radio Catalunya.

"I am very happy that my name is being mentioned, but my goal right now is to put in a good season with Napoli.

"We will see what happens next year and we will see what happens with Victor Valdes."

Reina was replaced at Liverpool by Simon Mignolet when he was rumoured to be en-route to Barcelona this year, but Valdes then said he was staying and so a year-long loan to Napoli was finalised.

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
