Pepe Reina is still flirting with Barcelona

by Kevin Coleman

He does have Barcelona blood in him, after all.

Pepe Reina is still talking about moving back to Barcelona. Of course, he joined Napoli during the summer to link up with old manager Rafa Benitez and is doing quite well. He even forced Mario Balotelli into his first ever penalty miss.

But that hasn’t stopped him speaking about the club, as he did while at Liverpool. Considering Simon Mignolet has more or less cemented his future as the number one on Merseyside, Pepe will be free to leave next summer.

“It would be great to return to Barcelona. I am very happy that my name’s being mentioned, but my goal right now is to put in a good season with Napoli.”
