BERLIN, Aug. 8 (Xinhua) -- Bayern Munich signed Liverpool goalkeeper Pepe Reina on a three-year contract, the German giants confirmed in an official statement on Friday.

Reina, who spent his last season on a loan spell at Napoli, penned a contract until June 2017 after passing the medical on Friday. The new arrival received the jersey number 23, which he also wears with the Spanish national team.

"I am delighted to join one of the biggest clubs of the world," Reina told Bayern's official homepage.

Reina will be the second man behind German World champion Manuel Neuer, who remains the undisputed number one between the posts.

"Pep wanted a goalkeeper who plays like Manuel Neuer. You can' t take it for granted to find a man with his experience and quality, who is ready to take the place as the number two," Bayern CEO Karl-Heinz Rummenigge said.

Bayern Munich clinched the domestic double last season but failed to defend their UEFA Champions League title as they lost to Real Madrid at the semis. The Bavarians kick off the Bundesliga season 2014-2015 on August 22 against Wolfsburg.
