Sir Alex Ferguson wants Pepe Reina to be Manchester United’s new No.1.
United boss Ferguson is at the head of a queue of clubs who believe Liverpool star Reina may become available because of unrest at Anfield.
The Spain international is to hold talks with Liverpool’s new owners NESV after becoming concerned about the club’s long-term direction.
He could be the first man to move between Liverpool and their bitter rivals in either direction since Phil Chisnall left Old Trafford in 1964.
With Liverpool struggling under Roy Hodgson, American tycoon John W Henry faces a battle to convince top stars like Reina, Fernando Torres and Glen Johnson that the future is bright.
Ferguson has been assured that money will be made available for big signings after the Glazer family promised Wayne Rooney they will compete in the transfer market, and Reina would set them back £12million.
Liverpool do not want to sell, and especially not to their fierce rivals. But there is a growing feeling that Reina may be available. (Daily Mirror)
Whilst there is no doubt that when Edwin Van der Sar hangs up his gloves Sir Alex Ferguson will have a tough time finding an adequate replacement would he really manage to lure Anfield goalie Pepe Reina to Old Trafford? It would be a move the Spaniard would be chastised constantly for if he did indeed make the controversial move to Liverpool’s arch rivals.
The 28 year old goalie has been one of the most consistent performers in the Premier League since his arrival on Merseyside in July 2005 and is a player who may well be unhappy with the current crisis at the club but would surely not entertain the notion of such a move, or would he?
