      Liverpool goalkeeper Pepe Reina could complete a £22 million move to arch-rivals Manchester United in the summer, according to a report in The Sun.

      United are in the market for a new No.1 to succeed Edwin van der Sar, who has announced his intention to retire at the end of this season. They have been linked with a host of leading keepers, including Atletico Madrid prodigy David De Gea, Maarten Stekelenburg of Ajax and Schalke's Manuel Neuer.

      This latest report, of a possible move for Liverpool's Reina, is likely to ruffle feathers at Anfield.

      But the Reds are losing patience with the Spaniard, who has refused to commit his future to the club and appears to many to want out of Merseyside.

      The 28-year-old signed a six-year deal with the club last April, but within two months was reportedly seeking a £15m move to Arsenal, which Liverpool rejected.

      It is now claimed that, following Fernando Torres' transfer to Chelsea, Reina's agent is scrutinising the goalkeeper's contract for an exit clause similar to the one his international team-mate used to get out of Anfield.

      However, Reina has stated that his Liverpool future will depend upon where they finish they season, as he seeks a return to Champions League football.

      Liverpool's new owners have already underlined their ambition, breaking consecutive transfer records with the £22.8m acquisition of Luis Suarez from Ajax and the £35m purchase of Andrew Carroll from Newcastle.

      Arsenal are expected to compete fiercely for Reina's signature, as they seek an experienced shot-stopper in the wake of costly errors by Manuel Almunia, Lucasz Fabianski and newcomer Wojciech Szczesny, whose mix-up with Laurent Koscielny last week cost the Gunners their chance of a first trophy in six years.

    • New keepers tend to make mistakes and will find it difficult to adjust to the premier  league in short notice. They may show good form in Europe but it will probably take 1 or 2 seasons for them to come good and there is no guarantee they will cos of the high profile and added pressure that comes along with it...Remember Barthez...

      Reina is good. Surprisingly, read that he is the winner of the golden glove for a few seasons already... At 28, he isn't old at all... For a keeper, I think that's the best age where he has enough experienced and maturity to handle the job and the pressure... He can easily go on for the next 10 yrs...

      And to take him away directly from Pool... My goodness, that is like a coup... Cos we are not talking about some journeyman here... It's one of their biggest player. Since when has a top player move directly between clubs? I think we may have to go back a lot of years to find that result... And just for that, it's worth it... lol.

    • Pool fans will definitely be unhappy with him until he says he wants to stay...

      Psychologically, it will be a big blow to Liverpool when a top player of theirs wants to leave their club to join United...

      In a way, it probably implies how the mighty have fallen...

    • 22m??? Faster sell him! There are lots of better keeper out there..would take de gea anytime! Liverpool need to change half of the team. Those without passion and motivation to play for Liverpool must leave, no matter how good they are.
