Liverpool goalkeeper Pepe Reina has appeared to soften his stance on a possible Anfield exit, though he refused to be drawn on whether he would consider a shock switch to Manchester United.
Reina, 28, signed a six-year deal with the Reds last April but, with United in the hunt for a new No. 1 because of Edwin van der Sar's impending retirement, the Spaniard's name has been among those linked with a move to Old Trafford.
Reina has admitted the prospect of regularly challenging for trophies would be a major draw if he were to move away from Anfield, although he was coy on talk of him becoming the first player to move directly from Liverpool to United since Allenby Chilton in 1938.
"Yes, well, Van der Sar will hang up his gloves in the summer so of course they are looking," Reina told Spanish radio station Ondo Sera. "I can't do anything. I can't say anything logically as I have a contract with Liverpool.
"Of course, one likes to fight for titles and be in a team that does that. We always fought to be in the Champions League and tried to win the title, but unfortunately it hasn't been the case in the last couple of years. I won't lie - I want to play in the Champions League and challenge for titles."
In January, Reina pledged his future to Liverpool, insisting that he would honour his contract with the Merseysiders.
The former Villarreal goalkeeper could honour his contract and still follow compatriot Fernando Torres out of the club, should reports of a summer buyout clause prove true.

Okey. Firstly Liverpool dah gantikan uncle Woy Hodgson dengan Kenny Dalglish. Then Torres dah chow ke Chelsea. Liverpool juga dah dapatkan pengganti Torres named Andy Carroll. Luis Suarez pun ada juge. So until the end of the season, we'll see if liverpool dapat selamatkan season diorang yang started quite badly ni. Kalau tak dapat top 4, maknanya tak ada Champions League football la for liverpool next season. Dan bila tak layak CL, maka star utama macam Reina ni semestinya chow. But transfer ke Man United? I say this is surely not going to happen. But if that happend jugak, I'm the happiest United fans in the world. Reina memang world class keeper mind.
Notes : Oh susahnya nak cari pengganti Van Der Sar. Jangan diulang semula mistake zaman² Fabien Barthez, Massimo Taibi & Mark Bosnich sudah. I want Manuel Neuer please~
