Manchester United want Liverpool stopper Pepe Reina as Edwin van der Sar’s replacement, according to the Mirror.

Van der Sar is expected to be on his way out of Manchester, and possibly football as he turns 40 next Friday, and the Red Devils are on the lookout for a new keeper.

Spain international Reina has reportedly become disillusioned with life at Anfield after their poor start to life under Roy Hodgson.

Liverpool currently sit in the relegation zone with nine points from their first nine games and Hodgson will now need to convince his top stars, like Fernando Torres, the club will move forward.

And Reina is set to hold talks with Liverpool’s new owners, NESV, after becoming concerned with the long-term direction of the club.

Sir Alex Ferguson is reportedly now ready to swoop and, despite Liverpool’s reluctance to sell, he could be available to bring to Old Trafford for as little as £12 million.

The Merseyside club will, though, be aware of the repercussions of selling one of their prized assets to their fierce rivals and face the wrath of their fans if they do.

The last man to move between Manchester United and Liverpool was Phil Chisnall back in 1964, showing the depth of feeling felt by both sets of supporters and clubs in the past.
