Reina pleased with Barca links

Napoli goalkeeper Pepe Reina has conceded he is happy to be linked with a move to Barcelona next summer.

Reports in the Spanish Press have claimed that the Blaugrana could make a move for the on-loan Partenopei shot-stopper next year.

And the Liverpool man has insisted that he is pleased with the rumours, but wants to do well for Rafa Benitez’s side first.

“I am happy that my name has been linked with Barcelona,” he told Radio Catalunya. “But right now I’m focused on Napoli and doing well here.

“In the summer, we’ll see what happens.

“There has been nothing established yet, but I think Barcelona will have a long list of eligible candidates to replace Valdes – should he leave.”
