Liverpool star ready to follow Torres out of Anfield exit

Published Add your comment

Liverpool goalkeeper Pepe Reina is reportedly considering leaving Anfield in the summer – with Manchester United waiting in the wings.

According to Metro, the Spanish stopper will take stock at the end of the campaign after growing increasingly frustrated by the number of important players leaving Anfield in recent seasons.

Liverpool have hit the skids since the departure of Xabi Alonso to Real Madrid in 2009 and, last week, Fernando Torres forced his own exit after handing in a transfer request.

Metro continues to report that Liverpool fans are beginning to use forums and blog sites to admit their concerns that Reina may follow suit as the Spanish contingent at Anfield continues to diminish.


The imminent departure of Edwin van der Sar from Manchester United has led to growing speculation that the Old Trafford club could bid for Reina in the closed season, which could make for an intriguing summer on Merseyside.

Reina has established himself as arguably the best goalkeeper in the Barclays Premier League since joining Liverpool in 2005 and is known to have an admirer in United boss Sir Alex Ferguson.

Contrary to reports, however, the 28-year-old has outlined his commitment to Liverpool in recent weeks and believes there are 'exciting' times ahead at Anfield under the stewardship of Kenny Dalglish.

"It's an exciting time and we still have half of the season remaining so there are a lot of points at stake," said the Liverpool no.1. "We want to get as high as we possibly can in the league. It is really competitive and we have to keep this up."
