Liverpool & Manchester United 'keepers no longer La Liga targets

Published 2 Comments

Manchester United and Liverpool can breathe easy as Barcelona have moved their attentions away from the Premier League for a new goalkeeper.

According to talkSPORT, the Camp Nou club were interested in recruiting either Manchester United’s David de Gea or Liverpool’s Pepe Reine.

Barcelona are looking for a new number one after Victor Valdes confirmed he would not be renewing his contract with them.

The future of De Gea at Old Trafford was brought into question earlier in the season, as reports emerged that Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson had lost patience with his inconsistency.

However, the Spaniard’s form has improved greatly and his future with the Red Devils looks more secure.

Liverpool number one Reina was tipped to join Barcelona in the summer by his own father and reports emerged claiming Anfield boss Brendan Rodgers was looking for a replacement.

Reina was also linked with a move to Premier League rivals Arsenal, who were one of the clubs tipped to make a move for Valdes.

Liverpool and Manchester United will likely be relieved to hear that Barcelona have now decided to look in La Liga for Valdes’s successor.

The report claims Valencia ‘keeper Vicente Guaita is now the centre of the Catalan club’s attentions.
