Will Reina return to Villarreal CF?

As we have previously commented, Pepe Reina’s return to Villarreal CF depends on Sergio Asenjo. The current goalkeeper of the yellow submarine would be considering his continuity at Villarreal CF, where he has run out of opportunities, because now Rulli is the starting goalkeeper for Emery.

That is why, after several years at the club, he would have decided to leave Villarreal CF to find minutes at another club. If this situation finally occurs, one of the options that will be on the table is that of Pepe Reina, who could be a luxury substitute for Emery’s men.

Another of the options that plays in favor of Villarreal CF is his contract. The 39-year-old goalkeeper ends his contract with Lazio in June, so he would reach the yellow submarine at zero cost. An option that also brings him closer to Spanish football after 20 seasons.

Of course, he would arrive with the knowledge that he starts with a disadvantage against Rulli, who will be the starting goalkeeper for Emery next season. However, and although he will fight for minutes, it is a situation that does not bother the player, who this season has been a substitute in almost half of the games.
