United target Liverpool ace


Liverpool will resist all offers for goalkeeper Pepe Reina as reports rumble on Manchester United have targeted him.

Reina is on a long-term deal at Anfield and has always maintained he is happy at the club despite the fact the Reds are struggling in the Premier League this season.

The Spaniard, who was signed by former Liverpool boss Rafa Benitez in 2005 and has gone on to establish himself as one of the best keepers in the world, has reportedly been eyed by Sir Alex Ferguson as a long-term replacement for Edwin van der Sar in the summer.

However, the Merseysiders are extremely unlikely to sell one of their star players to their biggest rivals even if the goalkeeper decides to ask for a move away at the end of the season.

Reina seems settled in Liverpool and recently talked about how he sees the club’s fortunes improving in the next couple of years.

He said: “I am committed here and I want us to win titles. I hope within a year, or a couple of years, we can be back up there again.

“We want to be back competing with the top clubs again. That is how it should be.

“This is my sixth season here and I think I know something about the club now and how the supporters think.”
