The 31-year-old -- who spent last season on loan with Serie A outfit Napoli -- is ready to join Bayern according to the club's president Karl-Heinz Rummenigge, who added he was just the type of goalkeeper they were looking for.

Reina -- who would be second choice behind German World Cup winning goalkeeper Manuel Neuer -- is due to travel to Munich in the next few days to undergo a medical and sign his contract, according to Rummenigge.
