Gianluca Di Marzio is a Sky Sports reporter in Italy and he has tweeted today that it looks like Monday will be the decision day for Pepe Reina and whether he stays at Napoli.
The Newcastle target has been trying to agree a contract extension to stay in Naples for a few weeks, but no such agreement has been forthcoming.
The news is that a decision will be made on whether a deal can be reached on a contract extension to keep the 34 year-old veteran goalkeeper at Napoli for the next few seasons.
34 year-old Pepe Reina – D Day is Monday
Pepe Reina’s long-serving agent Manuel Garcia Quilon will fly in on MOnday to meet with Napoli President Aurelio De Laurentiis for the second time in just over three weeks, to try to sort out the future of the former Liverpool goalkeeper.
If an agreement cannot be reached expect Rafa Benitez to move in quickly and make an offer for his former Liverpool goalkeeper with personal terms having already been agreed to bring Pepe to Newcastle.

The is what the tweet says – translated to English.
“Monday will be the decisive day for whether Pepe Reina will stay at Naples: there is a scheduled meeting between his agent and the President Aurelio De Laurentiis.”
“This encounter will clarify if Napoli will have to seek his replacement or just a goalkeeper to combine with Reina.”
“The future of which will be written on Monday.”
Newcastle and Napoli both need some clarification one way or the other on whether Pepe Reina will be staying in Naples for next season.
This is getting almost as bad as the Tammy Abraham saga.
