Ever since Pepe Reina arrived to Bayern Munich in August of 2014, the Spanish shot-stopper has made one competitive appearance for the German club and this was a few weeks ago when Bayern Munich defeated Werder Bremen.
Sitting on the sidelines of Bayern Munich has turned into a regular routine for the former Liverpool player who managed to earn the Liverpool Player of the Season award back in 2009 and also went on to claim the Premier League Golden Glove award for 3 successive years.
At one point of his career, Pepe Reina was considered to be one of the best players in his position and now he has turned into a backup option for Pep Guardiola.
Manuel Neuer is the undisputed number 1 goal-keeper of Bayern Munich and in order for Pepe Reina to start getting playing time on a consistent basis, his only option would be to leave the club and join a team where his chances of getting into the first team are greater and this might happen soon as rumors have started to emerge which link Pepe Reina with Inter Milan or Napoli.
Inter Milan are believed to be ready to offload Samir Handanovic and bring in another goal-keeper. The summer transfer window is approaching and Inter Milan’s Roberto Mancini is rumored to be interested in signing Pepe Reina when the current season reaches its end in a few months’ time.
If Mancini is truly interested in signing Pepe Reina during the summer transfer window, he will have to act fast or make a tempting offer to Bayern Munich as Napoli is also believed to be thinking about signing Pepe Reina once again.
Before Pepe Reina joined Bayern Munich, he was a player of Napoli after having signed a loan deal with the Italian club but Napoli is interested in signing Pepe Reina on a permanent deal and will attempt to sign him during the summer. Inter Milan and Napoli are expected to be locking horns during the summer in a race to sign the veteran goal-keeper.
