Top Clubs After Newcastle Star Jose Enrique


It’s not the first time this January, that Newcastle left back Jose Enrique has been linked with some top clubs.

Jose Enrique – going nowhere in the summer

But the news this morning, with a little over 36 hours left in the January transfer window, is that both Manchester United and Liverpool will try to sign Jose Enrique – but in the summer.

The Spaniard, who turned 25 last Sunday and was signed for £6.2M from Villarreal by Sam Allardyce in the summer of 2007, has only 18 months left on his contract at the Tyneside club, and we suppose those clubs think they will be able to get him on the cheap.

But Newcastle are not that daft these days, and certainly Newcastle manager Alan Pardew wants to get Jose signed up to an improved, long term deal on Tyneside, within the next month or two.

Manchester United may be interested,  because there are growing doubts about Frenchman Patrice Evra, who has only 18 months left of his contract, and if he doesn’t sign a new deal soon,  the Red Devils may elect to unload him this summer for a transfer fee, before his contract runs out.

And with Liverpool, Kenny Dalglish is generally on the look-out for good players, and of course it could be that Paul Koncheskey could return to Fulham before the end of the month.

Sunderland have also been linked with Enrique, but Steve Bruce is probably intelligent enough not to even contact Newcastle about the Spaniard, because there is no way Jose would be sold to Sunderland.   No way Jose!

Jose is a hugely popular player on Tyneside, and is in the form of his life, and still seems to be improving, and he is one of the small core of top players that new manager Alan Pardew will build the new Newcastle team around.

This doesn’t seem like a new story, and things on this front will change big time once Jose Enrique signs his new deal on Tyneside, which must be at least 95% certain.

We hope it’s at least 95% certain.

    Nice one Craigcoozy. Keep us posted mate. What’s your thoughts who it might be? Seb Larsson maybe one of them.

    Really hope Larsson is one of them so that the right side of midfield is strenthened. On subject: Jose would be a crippling loss to the team if he left in the summer, soon to be tied down I think. Don’t want to big up the fat controller but I’m starting to think he’s finally getting to grips with running a club. If he trully wants success for this club then this transfer window, and more importantly the summer window should help us get a measure of his intentions. Carroll to stay would be a good indication of intent.

    @craigcoozy Are we talking about 12 midday today? Midnight? Tomorrow?

    I believe that any deals that will be done will be done and announced tomorrow.

    I have never understood why clubs wait until the last day to carry out all their transfer deals. It doesn’t make sense. What if things go wrong and you don’t get the man you want? This has been a problem for Newcastle going back to when the transfer windows were introduced! Why don’t we do out business earlier?

    I still feel we need left back cover, a creative (possible wide) midfielder and a goalscorer. I’m keeping my fingers crossed for a triple unveiling tomorrow.

    toontime,

    it’s called playing the long game. To be fair Ashley is a very shrewd business man, even if he doesn’t know a lot about football.
    Sometimes clubs are desperate to get rid of an unhappy player and will drop their price at the last minute to ensure a sale.

    Don’t get me wrong, Ashley is still capable of making a totally rediculous decision at the drop of a hat, but some of the signs are encouraging, E.g. Not getting flieced for players by clubs, or the players themselves trying to hold us to ransom with wage demands. Speaking of that look at Joey Bartons attitude, he just wants to stay with this amazing club.

    I say again, no matter how much Jose loves the club he is not a supporter. If a Champions league team,with a genuine chance to win trophies, come in for him it will be hard to keep him. I honestly think we are trying to rebuild but we won’t be seriously challenging for years so it’s going to be hard to keep the foriegners when the big clubs start tapping them up.

    Are you thick or something?

    Since when has ‘MIDDAY’ ever been MIDNIGHT?

    Also no way we are buying 3 more players, never, never, never happen. Ireland and Ben Arfa only unless Larson has dropped his wage demands at the last minute.

    stuckdownsouth@ 15, I think you might be underestimating the power of the team spirit at the club, if Jose is happy and settled, why risk moving to a club where he might not even be first choice.(he would be in my team) He may want to see how ambitious the club is going to be. If we show him we’re going places, then he’s more likely to stay.

    craigcoozy. I take it you would get into a lot of trouble if you asked the players anything on their way out of where you work? Must be tempting to ask them if they’ve signed or not!

    I know where you’re coming from Toonfan76, I just have my doubts. Champions League next year or maybe perhaps with a good wind with us in 3/4 years. Forget Liverpool, but Champions League team Jose head may be turned. Let’s hope I’m wrong and he follows others and signs a new contract.

    I see where your coming from just hope he’s on the same wavelength as the players that are signing extended contracts. Agree with some good luck and if we hang on to our best players, the Champions League football may come our way in the non to distant future. Lets hope so!

    how come the podolski rumour just randomly started on twitter, maybe they is actually something in that, av heard ashley is willing to sanction a big transfer for pardew providing its within reason and he would only be like £4/5million and on reasonable wages…
    Ben Arfa
    Carroll Podolski
