If latest rumors are to believed, then Liverpool goalkeeper Pepe Reina might be set for a move to AC Milan over the summer transfer window, as the Italian giants look to take the Seire A title fight back from Juventus next season.

According to the Daily Mail, AC Milan are considering a move for the 29-year-old Reina, who is thought to be a better option than the 35-year-old Christian Abbiati by Milan boss Massimiliano Allegri. 

However, this transfer rumors is exactly that—a rumor—and should be discarded just as fast as the spam emails that clog up our inboxes every morning.

Reina will not leave Liverpool over the summer transfer window.

The international goalkeeper is committed to the Reds and eager to improve next season at Anfield—particularly under new boss Brendan Rodgers, whom Reina welcomed to the club last week.

His team [Rodgers at Swansea] has played well this year with an ethos that I share and Liverpool is also known to play the passing game but it is easier said than done. Rodgers is welcomed and I am at his disposal. We have won a trophy this year but it is clear that in recent seasons we should have done better....

It's not the first time either that Reina has been the source of a transfer rumor, with the goalkeeper rumored earlier in his career to be switching from Liverpool to Manchester United or Arsenal

It was a rumor then and it was a rumor now.

Reina didn't have the strongest season at Liverpool last season, but still remained top four in the Premier League for total goals conceded and recorded 12 clean sheets to his name, according to The Score.

He has thrown his full support behind Rodgers and the club, and will not leave Liverpool over the summer transfer window.

The supposed lure of Milan is no greater than that of Anfield for the 29-year-old, and the prospect of Champions League football at Milan won't be enough to encourage a move.

I'd ignore this one folks—just another transfer rumor with little behind it.

 

Pepe Reina's not moving to Milan... is he?
