Reina will miss several weeks after suffering a calf injury in an exhibition game Monday, Bundesliga.com reports.

Reina's name still holds some clout, but it does nothing to get him starts ahead of Manuel Neuer in Bundesliga or Champions League matches, which limits his fantasy value considerably.

Reina has agreed a deal to join Bayern Munich from Liverpool, Sky Sports reports.

Reina has asked Liverpool to terminate his contract since he's been unhappy with their inability to find him a transfer, the Daily Star reports.

Reina was not going to be the starting keeper for Liverpool this season because that job seems to be safely secured by Simon Mignolet. The 31-year-old was on loan to Napoli last season and would like to find a new squad since the EPL season is kicking off in just two weeks. The Spaniard still has two years left on the contract that he wants to be terminated.

Reina did not record a single save in Spain's 3-0 win over Australia at the World Cup on Monday.

Reina, who was starting in place of Iker Casillas following his allowance of seven goals in both of Spain's first two matches, has a bit of a question mark heading into the next football season. He is surely not going back to Liverpool, who have Simon Mignolet firmly entrenched in goal, but there is no guarantee that he will be returning to Napoli either.

Reina will start Spain's final World Cup match on Monday against Australia in place of Iker Casillas, who has been benched by coach Vicente del Bosque, FIFA.com reports.

Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers said that he believes Reina's days at Liverpool are over since the goalkeeper has already said farewell, reports Sky Sports.

Reina has been heavily linked with making his move away from Liverpool a permanent one, and Rodgers was surprised that the player essentially bid farewell to the club publicly. For those reasons, Rodgers considers Reina's days at the club to be over.

Reina made five saves en route to a clean sheet during Saturday's 2-0 win over Atalanta.

Reina has won all three of his starts this season and has recorded a shutout in two of those matches. It'll get a little harder in the upcoming week, as Napoli face Borussia Dortmund in a Champions League group stage match, followed by a return to Serie A action next Sunday against AC Milan.
