Pepe Reina is on the verge of seeing his dream transfer to Barcelona fall apart as new boss Luis Enrique considers other options, reports the Daily Star.
The Spanish goalkeeper was pushed out of the exit door by Brendan Rodgers last summer as Liverpool sent him on loan to Napoli for the season.
He is not expected to return to Anfield when the loan deal expires, and Rodgers has suggested that he will look to sell Reina on a permanent this summer.
A return to Barcelona seemed like the most likely move for Reina but it seems their new manager Luis Enrique is ready to explore different avenues.
Barcelona have confirmed the signing of Borussia Monchengladbach goalkeeper Marc-Andre Ter Stegen this week but, with Victor Valdes set to leave this summer, the Catalans were rumoured to be looking for competition for the German youngster.
However, Enrique doesn't seem to be too keen on signing Reina, who is earning a reported £100,000-a-week at Liverpool.
It now looks as though a permanent switch to Napoli is Reina's best option for Reina, where Rafa Benitez is expected to remain in charge.
A return to Liverpool looks even more unlikely than a move to Barcelona as Simon Mignolet has impressed since joining from Sunderland last summer.
