Camp Nou goalkeeper Valdes has confirmed he will leave the Spanish giants when his contract expires at the end of the season.

The decision of the 31-year-old, who has spent his entire professional career with the Catalan club, has sparked speculation over who will fill his role from next term.

Liverpool goalkeeper Reina, who is currently out on loan with Napoli in Serie A, has been strongly linked with a return to his homeland, and has admitted he would welcome the opportunity to feature for Barca.

Chelsea shot-stopper Thibaut Courtois, who is currently spending a third season on loan with Atletico Madrid, has been praised by Barcelona president Sandro Rosell and is regarded as another possible replacement.

Busquets, who knows Reina from their time together with the national side, says he would welcome his fellow countryman to Camp Nou.

"He's a great goalkeeper," he told COPE Radio. "If he comes it would be fine."

But, for now, Busquets wants the Barcelona supporters to appreciate the outgoing Valdes as he brings the curtain down on his distinguished career with the club over the next few months.

He added: "We can only enjoy him until the end of the season."

may well get slated by other United fans for this, but out of the three contenders, I'd far prefer Liverpool to win the title. Yes some elements of their fanbase can be a bit OTT, yes they're our biggest rivals and yes it will make our poor season feel even more like the end of an era (Fergie's gone, Liverpool are back on top). However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

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.
