Charles Itandje doesn’t inspire confidence and whilst he isn’t the worst keeper in the world I am afraid to say that he is nowhere near good enough to play for a club of the magnitude of Liverpool. With this in mind, Rafa has been planning a raid that would prove to make sound financial sense.
Manager Rafael Benitez wants Newcastle’s Steve Harper to battle with Pepe Reina for the number one goalkeeping spot at Liverpool. The 32-year-old could cost as little as £500,000. (The Sun)
After nearly 15 years at St James’ Park, Harper is having his busiest season to date at Newcastle. However he will, it seems, always be behind Shay Given in the pecking order. Will he take kindly to filling the same role behind Reina, maybe? What do Newcastle and Liverpool fans feel about this potential deal?
