Reina refutes Barcelona links

Liverpool goalkeeper Pepe Reina has refuted suggestions he could seek a move to Barcelona in the summer, insisting he is content at Anfield.

Reina, 30, has been linked with a move to the Camp Nou with doubts over Victor Valdes's future at Barca a prominent feature of the January transfer window. 

The Reds keeper was given more questions to answer after his father, Miguel, suggested Reina would be "delighted to return to Barcelona".

But the Spaniard claims he has not engaged in future talks with Liverpool or Barcelona and is committed to seeing out his contract with the Premier League club.

"[A move to Barcelona] is not in my hands and the rumour mongering is part of that," Reina told AS. "They're such a great club, but I'm happy at Liverpool"

Reina was also questioned about his relationship with compatriot Valdes, but refused to shed light on whether the 31-year-old will be looking for a move away from Barca.

"He [Valdes] is a friend, I'm going to respect him in everything that he decides," he said. "He will have his reasons. He's not told me anything"

With Real Madrid goalkeeper Iker Casillas omitted from Vicente Del Bosque's squad for Spain's upcoming internationals against Finland and France, Reina could make a rare start for La Roja. And he will be eager to make an impact with Real's second-choice 'keeper Diego Lopez waiting in the wings.

"Everything indicates that I will play, but I won't change my attitude because Iker [Casillas] isn't here," Reina said. "I'm always excited and prepared. Not everybody that is called up is lucky enough to play. Only 11 play, but being called up by your country is an honour.

"Diego [Lopez] is playing so well; he has been decisive in many games and he is a Real Madrid-quality goalkeeper, without doubt. But in the national team it is the manager that makes the decisions.

"I'm not the showman. I'm an extrovert and joyful, and I have been lucky enough to be able to celebrate three great titles. I have been one of the most dedicated, but I am one of La Roja's goalkeepers, not the showman.

"It's not something that I prepare; I'm like that and whoever knows me knows that. But at the same time I don't want people to prefer the funny Pepe Reina. I want them to value me as a sportsman."
