Napoli offered Pepe Reina a contract extension, but it’s reported the goalkeeper turned the first proposal down.
He is currently on loan from Liverpool and his contract expires in June 2016, but President Aurelio De Laurentiis confirmed he wants the 31-year-old to stay.
According to Calciomercato.com, Liverpool are prepared to sell Reina for a maximum of £5m.
The problem appears to be the personal terms, as it’s claimed Napoli offered a four-year deal worth €2.5m per season plus performance-related bonuses.
It would be a huge drop for Reina, who currently earns €4.5m without bonuses.
The same source also suggests the Spaniard is not convinced he wants to end his career in Naples, so would prefer a two-year contract paying wages of at least €3.5m per season.
