Reina open to longer Napoli stay

Goalkeeper Pepe Reina has said he is open to the idea of extending his stay in Italy, reports the Corriere dello Sport.

The 31-year-old stopper spent last season on loan in Naples where he linked up with his former Anfield boss Rafael Benitez. He is currently with the Spanish World Cup squad in Brazil, where he told a radio station that he would consider a longer spell on the peninsula.

Saying that he had enjoyed his year with Napoli, where he felt wanted, he said he had not at all discarded the idea of staying with the Azzurri, but that it depended on an agreement between both clubs and himself.

“I have a contract with Liverpool and I must return there,” said Reina. “But there are also possibilities to take a different path.”

Atletico Madrid are also rumoured to be interested in his services, a move that he could be open to, saying: “With every year that passes I have a greater desire to return to Spain.”

With two years remaining on his Liverpool contract, one stumbling block to a more permanent switch to Napoli will be his wage demands, which at around a rumoured £4 million a season could be outwith the Italians’ means.

Reina starred for Napoli last season, playing 40 matches in all competitions as the Azzurri finished third in Serie A and won the Coppa Italia.
