Earlier the two clubs, the Reds and the Bavarian outfit had agreed terms for the transfer of the Spanish international. Reina has now successfully completed his medical and will sign a three-year deal with the Bundesliga champions on Friday.
A statement on Bayern’s official website read,” Spanish keeper Pepe Reina has all but completed the final formalities before joining Bayern after passing the obligatory pre-transfer medical at chief medical officer Hans-Wilhelm Müller-Wohlfahrt’s Munich practice on Thursday evening. Reina will report to the club’s Säbener Strasse headquarters to sign a three-year contract on Friday.”
After Reina completed his medical, Bayern chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge said,”Pep wanted a keeper like Manuel Neuer who’s capable of joining in the build-up play.”
“You can never take for granted finding a man with his experience and quality who’s prepared to accept the number two position. Michael Reschke has done very well while we were in the USA,” Bayern chief added.
