Pepe Reina could come to United

At least if he comes to Old Trafford he won't have to put up with Giggs scoring past him

Liverpool’s Pepe Reina has been linked with a move to Old Trafford- along with nearly every other goalkeeper on Europe- for the past few months.

With transfers between United and Liverpool about as common as a City trophy win, the smart money is on Reina plying his trade at Anfield next season.

However recent comments the Spanish stopper has made to the press indicate that like Fernando Torres, Xabi Alonso and Javier Mascherano, Reina may not be all that enamoured of Liverpool Football club.

According to a report in the Guardian Reina said: “Liverpool is still Liverpool and always will be bigger than any player. The club belongs to its fans and the fans’ loyalty is to the club – not a player or a passport. Kenny Dalglish was absolutely right: anyone that doesn’t want to be at Liverpool can leave. Players will come and go.”

“I am not, announcing my departure – far from it. I’ve said lots of times I’m very happy in England and comfortable at Liverpool.

“But I’m not prepared to swear eternal love to anyone. That’s impossible. Any player who says that is lying. I can’t say much because I have a contract with Liverpool. But eternal love doesn’t exist. No one is master of his own destiny. When a player is at club he has to give everything – that is all you can ask of him.”

Reina’s refusal to ‘swear eternal love to anyone’ has already been seen as a delcaration that he is willing to move away from Anfield.

With Sir Alex Ferguson desperate to find a replacement for the retiring Edwin Van Der Sar before the beginning of next season, could Reina be  the ideal replacement.

With plenty of Premier League not to mention Champion’s League experience, Reina could arguably be the perfect man to take over the number one shirt.

Would you welcome the Liverpool man at Old Trafford?

    if he wants to go then let him (get top dollar tho) but he MUST not go to old toilet ! there is no way he can go there , when liverpool went after heinze fergie made a point in not letting him come and virtually said he would not go to us over his dead body . so if he does go then no way can he go to the scum !!!!!!!!!!

    NO, I dont want Reina, Akinfeev, Mandanda,, Lloris or that snood wearing weak little girly boy De Gea. Cesar, Buffon, Neuer, Adler, Stekelenberg are the sort of keepers we should look at if we sell Kuszczak. These keeper stories have become very boring very fast, we will buy who we buy. More interesting is reports from Argentina suggesting we are trying to land Javier Pastore for €40m, just media talk but wouldnt mind it if we buy him. We have to buy Alexis Sanchez.

    A Kop scum running his mouth, I see you mention an “old toilet”but I assume your on about that banged up run down out of date dump called Anfield as surely your not disrespecting the worlds most famous stadium ‘The Theatre of Dreams’ Old Trafford thats for sure. I hate to upset you scum bag but the greatest manager of all time Sir Alex Ferguson doesnt want Reina, and “top dollar” ?, Reina is worth £10m at best. Typical deluded 2005 Kop trash.

    Hell no! If Heinze would get such vile thrown at him when he attempted to go to Liverpool, I would think the same about Reina vice versa. There are loads of other goalkeepers out there.
