Barcelona target will see out Liverpool contract

Liverpool goalkeeper Pepe Reina has downplayed the prospect of replacing Victor Valdes at Barcelona, reiterating his commitment to the Merseyside club.

Sky Sports reports how the 30-year-old Spaniard has been linked with a move away from Anfield, as the Reds turn their attention to finding a replacement for their current custodian.

Brendan Rodgers is believed to be on the lookout for a new number one, as his focus shifts to the long-term future of Liverpool Football Club.

And, with Reina's recent performances taking a turn for the worse, speculation about a possible departure has increased following his dip in form.

Barcelona has been earmarked as one potential destination for the Liverpool stopper, after Valdes announced last month that he would not be signing a new contract at Camp Nou when his current deal expires in 2014.

"I was surprised because Victor is with the best team in the world," Reina admitted in an interview with MoviStar.

"Barcelona is the best club in the world. I know what it means because I trained there as a player and as a person."

However, the former Villarreal goalkeeper - who signed for Liverpool in 2005 - insists he will see out the remainder of his contract at Anfield. 

"When I sign a contract I fulfil it and I have signed with Liverpool until 2016," Reina added.
