Spanish goalkeeper Pepe Reina has denied reports that he has spoken to Barcelona over a possible transfer next summer, according to the Daily Star.

Reina who is currently on loan at Napoli from Liverpool said that he was flattered to be linked with one of his former clubs, but insists that he is concentrating on his loan spell in Italy.

“It is normal that a player dreams of representing a club like Barcelona or Real Madrid because they are historic and prestigious teams,” he told Spanish radio station Cope.

“But there was no contact between me and Barcelona that was just an invention of the newspapers. I have a contract with Liverpool until 2016. I do not care about the rumours. I am excited to be at Napoli and will try and win something here.”

Reina started his career with the Catalonian club playing 49 games in a two-year period. He then went onto join Villarreal in 2002 before making his name as a world class goalkeeper at Liverpool, where he has made nearly 400 appearances for the Reds. The Spanish stopper has won three consecutive Premier League Golden Glove Awards in 2006, 2007 and 2008.
