Liverpool star completes Bayern Munich move

Liverpool have finally offloaded unwanted goalkeeper Pepe Reina, with the Spaniard now officially a Bayern Munich player, according to reports from the Daily Star.

The Spanish stopper recently returned to Anfield after a loan spell with Napoli, and was quickly deemed surplus to requirements by Brendan Rodgers.

The goalie’s decision to criticise the club as he left last summer is thought to have angered the Northern Irishman, who opted against using him in the Merseysiders’ pre-season tour of America.

A switch to Napoli on a full basis was expected, but Bayern’s interest was confirmed earlier this week and now a deal has been done.

Liverpool will pocket around £2m for Reina’s signature while removing his £100,000-per-week salary from their wage bill.

The World Cup winner will be a back-up man for Manuel Neuer, but he says that he’s excited to be at the Allianz Arena:

“I’m delighted to be coming to one of the world’s biggest clubs,

“I came here as I want to win as many trophies as possible.”

Reina joined Liverpool in 2005 from Villarreal and made almost 300 appearances for the club, in which time he became a fans’ favourite.
