Pepe Reina has rubbished speculations linking him for a move to the catalan giants. The 30-year-old Spaniard, who has been at Anfield since 2005, spent his youth career at the La Liga giants and went on to make 30 first-team appearances before leaving in 2002.
"Any talk of me joining Barca is just speculation. I've got a contract at Liverpool and I'm very happy here," he told Radio Marca.
"I am sure Victor Valdes will have his reasons for deciding to leave Barcelona. I respect him. He's my teammate and friend. He'll be leaving with his head held high, as he's given his all to Barcelona."
Reina has a contract with Liverpool till 2016.
Well not sure if all liverpool fans around the world are optimistic about Reina especially with the frequent errors in the recent past. But if he can show the consistency he showed during Rafa's time, he can be considered one amongst the best keepers in the world especially with his distribution skills.

Brendan Rodgers was appointed the new manager of Liverpool.The 39-year-old Northern Irishman succeeds Anfield great Kenny Dalglish, who was sacked last month after his second spell in charge ended with Liverpool finishing the season a massive 37 points behind champions Manchester City. The Merseyside club's American owners the Fenway Sports Group (FSG) had given Dalglish more than £100 million (159 million dollars) to spend in the transfer market since he took over from the sacked Roy Hodgson, now in charge of England, in 2011.
But expensive signings such as Andy Carroll, Stewart Downing, Jordan Henderson and Charlie Adam have largely flopped, with Liverpool's eighth place finish their worst season-ending position for nearly two decades although they did win the League Cup.
Swansea, in their first Premier League season, finished 11th and also took four points off Liverpool in their two league games.
"I'm blessed to be given this opportunity," said Rodgers, who spent two years in charge of Swansea.
"I want to thank John Henry (Liverpool's principal owner), Tom Werner (chairman) and FSG for the opportunity to manage such a great club.
"I'm really excited and I can't wait to get started on this incredible project going forward. I promise to dedicate my life to fight for this club and defend the great principles of Liverpool Football Club on and off the field."
Henry said: "Fenway Sports Group is committed to building for the long-term. Brendan Rodgers's appointment today as manager of Liverpool Football Club is one of the most important steps we will take in building the kind of club on and off the pitch supporters can be excited about.
"Brendan's comprehensive football philosophy is perfectly aligned with those at the club and those soon to join the club. He was the first choice unanimously among them and he had no hesitation at all in embracing exactly what we want to try to build at Liverpool."
The Merseysiders, five-times European champions, won the last of their 18 English titles in 1990 and Henry added: "We do not expect miracles overnight nor should anyone else.
"But we firmly believe that the direction the club is heading in will lead to Premier League championships. We will embrace the unconventional, build the right way and together set a bold, exciting course for this historic club."

The 26-year-old, who has been capped 27 times by England, becomes Kenny Dalglish's fourth summer signing following the transfers of Jordan Henderson from Sunderland, Blackpool's Charlie Adam and the acquisition of Brazilian goalkeeper Alexander Doni, which was confirmed earlier on Friday.
Villa confirmed earlier this week that Downing had submitted a formal transfer request and he travelled to Liverpool to discuss terms and complete a medical before signing a long-term deal at the club.
Downing, who moved to Villa Park for around £10million two years ago, had been a prime summer target of Liverpool manager Dalglish, who saw bids of €13.4 million and €17 million rejected before an agreement for an undisclosed fee, believed to be in the region of €22 million, was struck.
Downing made it clear only last month, when on England duty, that he would not sign an extension with Villa, effectively forcing them to listen to offers.
Arsenal were reported last weekend to have joined the competition for his signature but Liverpool were always the front-runners, according to the player himself.
"It's a great feeling and I'm very happy to be here. It's been a long time coming and I've had to wait a few weeks, but I'm really pleased to be here," he told www.liverpoolfc.tv. "With the tradition, the manager and the players they have here, there was a big temptation to come here and once I knew of their interest, there was only one place I wanted to go.
"It will be a great feeling to run out at Anfield. It's always nice to come and play here. The atmosphere is always great and the fans are brilliant. When I wanted to come to Liverpool, it was the first thing I thought of - playing at Anfield in front of those great fans. I'm really looking forward to it."
The idea of winning silverware on a regular basis also appealed to Downing.
He said: "It would be nice to win something. I'm sure that's the same objective for everyone, not just me personally. My aim is to be in the team, to play well and give something back because the manager has pushed the boat out to get me here, so hopefully I can give him something back.
"Getting a few goals and a few assists for the lads up front, that's what I'm hoping for."

Reds' director of football Damien Comolli set for talks with the Tangerines this weekend & Anfield club are clear favourites to seal £10m deal despite McLeish's interest in Scot
Liverpool are ready to step up their attempts to sign Blackpool captain Charlie Adam in the coming days and are confident of beating off competition from Aston Villa.
Adam is one of Liverpool's top targets for the summer transfer window and director of football Damien Comolli is planning talks with Blackpool chairman Karl Oyston over the weekend.
The Reds want to pay £9 million for the central midfielder but could be forced to up their bid to £10m due to interest from new Aston Villa manager Alex McLeish.
McLeish gave Adam his Rangers debut in 2003 and wants to add his fellow Scot to the Villa squad following the sale of Ashley Young to Manchester United.
United have themselves been monitoring Adam's situation, as have Everton, but it now looks like a straight battle between Liverpool and Villa for the playmaker's signature.
Liverpool are firm favourites to land Adam and Anfield is believed to be the 25-year-old's preferred destination.
Reds manager Kenny Dalglish failed with an £8m bid for Adam in January but has maintained his interest as he makes major changes at Anfield to target a top-four finish next season.
The Tangerines resisted offers in January as they sought to retain their Premier League status but are resigned to Adam's departure this summer following their relegation to the Championship.
Blackpool triggered a 12-month extension to Adam's contract in May but accept they will have to sell their star man, who cost just £500,000 when he arrived from Rangers in 2009.
Adam would become Liverpool's second signing of the summer following the arrival of England Under-21 international Jordan Henderson from Sunderland in a £16m deal.

Sylvain Marveaux has claimed that he joined Newcastle after failing to agree personal terms with Liverpool.
The 25-year-old signed a five-year deal at St James Park this morning after reports in France had alleged that he had failed the medical arranged to finalise his protracted move to Anfield.
But Marveaux, speaking to L'Equipe, has refuted the suggestions and claims that negotiations between his representatives and Reds chiefs hit a stumbling block on Thursday evening.
"I do not want to go into details, but I did not sign for Liverpool because there was a contractual disagreement between the parties Thursday night", said the former Rennes winger.
Magpies boss Alan Pardew is delighted to be able to welcome both Marveaux and former West Ham striker Demba Ba to the North East as he prepares for the new season.
He said: "It's a great coup to have signed Sylvain, who has received interest from a number of other clubs.
"He may not be well known to many of our fans but he is a real talent and a player we have been keeping an eye on for some time.
"It's been a good couple of days for us on the transfer front."

Liverpool have moved closer to signing Sylvain Marveaux on a free transfer after the French midfielder underwent a medical on Merseyside.
The 25-year-old is out of contract following five seasons in the Rennes first team and has been linked with a move to Anfield since January.
Talks took place between Liverpool officials and Marveaux's representatives when Roy Hodgson was manager, although the club's director of football Damien Comolli has overseen the transfer and interest has not waned since Kenny Dalglish took charge.
Marveaux made only 10 appearances for Rennes last season due to a serious groin injury but, providing he passes the medical, the left-sided midfielder is likely to become Liverpool's second capture of the summer following the arrival of Jordan Henderson from Sunderland.

Liverpool have unveiled their third kit for season and to the surprise of everyone it features an eye-catching white, blue and black design.
Well it certainly seems to be some kind of marketing strategy but it has certainly raised a lot of eyebrows.
This kit draws inspiration from shirts worn by Liverpool sides of the 1980s with the diagonal stripe, the inclusion of cyan dates back to the club's first home strip, which was blue and white, worn almost 120 years ago.
Well no matter what colour kit it is, but once a RED always remains a RED....YNWA!!!
Hope glory days are back again....
