Reina not seeking Liverpool exit, insists agent

The goalkeeper has been linked with both a move to Barcelona and a reunion with former Reds boss Rafael Benitez at Napoli this summer

Liverpool goalkeeper Pepe Reina is not looking for a move away from Anfield during the summer, according to the player’s agent.

The Spaniard has been linked with a move to Barcelona after Victor Valdes voiced his desire to seek a new challenge away from Camp Nou, while Napoli have been mentioned as a possible destination following former Liverpool boss Rafael Benitez’s appointment.

Valdes tipped Reina as his successor for when he does ultimately depart Catalunya, with the Reds No.1 previously admitting a move to the Liga champions would be hard to refuse, but his representative, Manuel Garcia Quilon, insists the 30-year-old will most likely remain at Anfield.

“Reina has been clear in recent days his thoughts, his future is still at Liverpool,” Garcia Quilon told “At the moment there are no chances for Napoli and Barcelona.

“Pepe considers Benitez a great coach but his future will still be at Anfield.”

Reina joined Liverpool from Villarreal in 2005, going on to make 395 appearances in all competitions.
