Reina is unlikely to stay at the club beyond the summer.
Liverpool goalkeeper Pepe Reina is currently on-loan at Napoli for the season and has admitted a departure from Anfield in the summer is extremely likely.
The Spaniard is contracted with the Reds until 2016, but manager Brendan Rodgers signed Simon Mignolet from Sunderland last summer for £9m to be the club’s new No.1.
It means that there is probably no room for Reina in the squad anymore and the 31-year-old has accepted that he needs to move on to find first team football.
“I’ve got to return to Liverpool, although it’s unlikely I’ll stay there,” the Spain international was quoted by the Daily Express.
Reina joined the club from Villarreal in 2005 for £6m and immediately became the preferred stopper ahead of Champions League penalty shootout hero Jerzy Dudek.
In that first season on Merseyside the Spanish star performed some heroics of his own in a cup final, helping the team beat West Ham United on penalties to win the 2006 FA Cup.
In his first three years in England Reina was awarded the Golden Glove for being the best ‘keeper in the division and was a stalwart in the side – playing 395 times in all competitions for the club.
However, when Rodgers took over the 2012 the Northern Irishman set about making changes to the squad and although the Spaniard remained between the posts that campaign, mistakes sealed his fate and the 25-year-old Mignolet was bought in 12 months later.
