Liverpool goalkeeper Pepe Reina has confirmed he hopes to seal a move back to Barcelona next summer.
Reina, who was a graduate of the Barca academy, is currently on a season long loan at Napoli after being frozen out of Anfield.
The former Liverpool No.1 says he has no interest in returning to Liverpool, with a much talked about move to Barcelona being his main priority.
‘I would love to return to Barcelona,’ he told the Catalan press.
To play at Barca is a privilege. I was fortunate to play there once and I consider myself privileged to have done that.’
However Reina says he knows that he faces a battle with several other players to get Valdes No.1 shirt.
‘Barca is a top club and Victor Valdes’ departure will have alerted other candidates so a return will be very difficult.’
