Pepe Reina Says He Has No Intention of Signing With Manchester United, Will Stay With Liverpool to ‘Fight For Titles’


Don't worry Liverpool fans, resident goalkeeper Pepe Reina made it clear that he wants to be part of the Reds for years to come and outright denied a potential move to Manchester United.

Reina, who is believed to have a £20 million release clause in his five-year contract, will return to Anfield next season under manager Kenny Dalglish, reports, even though the Spaniard had previously hinted at taking his career elsewhere.

"I'm happy, calm and comfortable here," Reina said recently. "Looking towards the future which I reckon will bring a lot of happiness and hopefully the new project with the new American owners will be a convincing one, attractive and ambitious above all."

"I am not going to Manchester, that is not my intention," the goalkeeper added.

The 28-year-old mentioned earlier this month that the transition under Dalglish has improved the club since the Anfield legend replaced Roy Hodgson in January. Reina also noted that he's impressed with Fenway Sports Group's work thus far in Liverpool, and is looking forward to further investments in the transfer window this summer.

"It's my understanding, and based on what I've gathered from the people here, that we will be bringing in some important players, continuing to grow," Reina said. "Hopefully in one or two years we will be in the place that Liverpool deserves to be, which is fighting for titles."
