Newcastle will try to keep Jose Enrique at Newcastle in the summer, but if some big bids come in for the player he may go the same of Andy Carroll – out of the club.
That’s another club in the European Champions League every season, and that could be a draw to Jose, who is obviously an ambitious lad.
Jose says he will negotiate a new deal with Newcastle, but only when Newcastle are safe from relegation, which could be a good few weeks off, depending on how long Newcastle take to garner the 6 or so points they need to ensure survival.
Enrique’s current Newcastle deal will expire a year come June, and the left-back has already been linked with Manchester United, Liverpool and AC Milan, with AC Milan being reported ready to bid £10M for the player.
But the big news to us today is that the German club are reported ready to bid £13.5M for Jose.
Of course that may well be a made-up figure, but the higher the bidding actually goes for Jose this summer, the more chance Newcastle have of selling the Spaniard.
We’re not saying that’s a good thing, but that’s the way of things at Newcastle United these days – every single player has their price.
