Jose Enrique To Be Offered Bumper Five Year Deal


While there was news in the People this morning that Manchester United may be after Jose Enrique, good news today in the Sunday Sun that the Spaniard may be having second thoughts about leaving Newcastle.

Jose Enrique – having second thoughts about leaving?

Jose was upset that Andy Carroll was allowed to leave in January, as was Joey Barton, and a whole loot of Newcastle fans to be sure, including us – my son Neil says he’ll never ever watch another Liverpool match, and was simply devastated by the sale.

But possibly because Newcastle have done so well this season in the league, and that the £35M Carroll cash will presumably be reinvested in the squad this summer, Jose may feel Newcastle have a good future ahead of them.

And Jose may feel he has a part to play in that future on Tyneside.

Newcastle had a bid of £5M for Toulouse left back Cheikh M’Bengue rejected recently, and only this week the player himself has said Newcastle were after him.

But Alan Pardew has told the Sunday Sun today that Jose Enrique had “absolutely not” said he wanted  a move.

Pardew and Enrique have both been consistent in saying negotiations will start when Newcatsle are safe, and then we guess that was changed to say all contract negotiations will start at the end of the season. That’s next Sunday.

The Sunday Sun is reporting the good news today that Newcastle are now ready to offer the Spaniard a massive new five-year contract with a substantial pay rise, so that’s very good to hear.

Alan is still said to be optimistic of retaining one of Newcastle’s best players, and the chants for Enrique by the Geordie crowd last Saturday, will not have not hurt that one little bit.

In fact more of that in the West Brom game next Sunday could persuade Enrique to stay – it’s got to be worth a try.

In fact if Jose stays on Tyneside, he will be an even bigger hero because he will have chosen Newcastle over some big clubs after him – like Liverpool, Bayern Munich and Manchester United.

This is what manager Pardew said today about Jose:

“He’s not indicated to myself or to Derek what his intentions are.” “We’re still optimistic – of course. I’d love to keep him. Absolutely love to keep him.”

“But I think we have to be on our guard because there are so many noises about him. I think that’s the nature of the business we’re in.”

It’s hard to know what to think with Jose with so many reports in the press about him leaving, but if he stays that would be just fantastic for Newcastle United.

If you’d like to send a message to Jose to ask him to stay you can do so here.

We get emails all the time on the web-site from readers, and we received one yesterday from a supposed Jose Enrique – and yes most of them are just fakes –  we know that.

I checked out the IP address and other things you can check out on-line, and it’s consistent – but still probably a prank.

Anyway the email asked why I was writing that he was leaving Newcastle, and he said he loved Newcastle and didn’t want to leave, but he also wanted the club to invest this summer and buy some top players.

Take it all with a pinch of salt – we did – although we do know Jose is a regular reader of this web-site.

We live in hope. 😀

    We must keep the likes of Enrique, Tiote, Coloccine, S.Taylor, H.Vuckic, Krul, Forster, and when Barton stops being an arse get him signed up also. Those 8 players are essential to NUFC being a force again but it will not happen unless we add to them quality players we have tied down (if). We need players in as good as or better then that list of players. We need at least 6 players of quality in this summer for us to push really high next season. However i still believe we will lose Barton and Enrique and Ashley is going to play hard ball by bringing in cheaper options and freebies. This summer is essential to NUFC pushing on and if it does not happen this summer we will fall from grace once again as we will lose our best players as NUFC will have shown no ambition and we will know for sure that Ashley is out for himself and nothing else BUT you never know he may surprise us this summer. Come on ASH splash that cash and get us back to the dizzy heights of Europe and sell out crowds, the club and fans deserve this at least.

    If Jose commits to the toon it shows they must be close to making some impressive signings, or pehaps Ahsley has sold out to a rich Arab!

    so why does joe enrique get offerd 5 years 6 (total) and a pay rise. when joey bartoon isnt aloud a 4 year (5 year total) contract with a paycut.
    both players have only really been good last 2 seasons
    and after 5 years joey wiil be 33 or 34 and thats not too old. thats when pardew should offer short contract or tell him no.

    i just think its stupid joey wants to commit to newcastle but you guys are all pissed.

    jose isnt even sure if wants to be at newcastle and you guys all love it when he gets offer a pay rise with long term deal..

    nolan is offerd a long term contract and is yet to agree although it has everything he should want a pay rise and long term but he is yet to agree. wich means he probaly wants to move on but doesnt want to tell us.

    all in all players who wanted to commit to us this season : barton, ben afra, tiote, ierland (yes he wanted to commit to us saying he loved newcastle etc)

    players who wanted a pay cut!!: barton

    players who are getting payrises (if they sign ): ben arfa tiote nolan and enrique.

    players who dont get shit : ierland ( although that might be good)

    conclusion players who want to stay and deserve to: tiote ben arfa and barton

    if jose signs this contract then i hope barton gets what he wants…as tiote and ben arfa did 😛

    I would have no complaints if we sold Barton tbh. He is so over rated. Crappy set pieces constantly and he doesn’t really lead the side like Nolan does. Would much prefer O’hara who proved he can deliver good set pieces and bag a goal every now and again

    Enrique over Jose?!

    Teams arent built on Left Backs and Barton has been one of our best players this season. Give me 10m for a a left back with one year left on his contract anyday!!

    I’d like to just put it out there, once again, we have been in need of a back up LB for a long time just because we are interested in a LB doesnt automatically mean Jose is gone.

    Toon1978 – even if Ash is out for himself, it will do him absolutely no good if we are relegated nor will it increase the selling value of the club, or whatever people think is his motivation ( because the annoying thing about the paranoia is that it’s inconsistent and unclear – one minute he’s making a mint from the club, the next he’s setting it up for a sale). I don’t mind if we get GOOD cheaper replacements that actually take the club forward.

    Although i believe we need two full backs i think left back is not so essential then the right back positio after all we have young Fergy to play there and we have a certain Mr Kadar who plays there also. Right back is more of a problem as our only half decent player there is Simpson. Hutton should be on our wanted list.

    Good shout mate. I think right back will escalate into quite a problem if we do not get cover there for next season.

    Ferguson is a winger not a LB though. We only have Jose atm who is a actual LB. Hence why I think just because we went for mburger doesnt mean that Jose is gone.

    RB we have Simpson Tavernier and Perch but I agree Hutton would be a good player to get in come summer.

    Fella I respect your opinion on him as a LB but I just cant see it. When I have seen him played there he didnt know how to defend but was exciting bombing on forward. His defending was passable for me because Collo (who was on a very good run of form) covered for him

    Tavernier will be a cracking RB has all the qualities can`t wait for him too have a run of games. Simpson will then become our backup Rb.

    We need a big, commanding CB to play with Colo. Samba type (if not him).

    Its all well and good looking for backup players but first of all lets get the starting 11 sorted and go from there!

    I respect yours also but i have seen him play left back and he has played well yes he is light weight for that position but he has held his own on quite a few occasions. Think i need glasses or i must sit to far away from the pitch or something lol.

    haha in all honesty I could be wrong….wouldnt be the first time.

    I think he can turn into our own Adam Johnson if he sticks to being a winger whereas if he is played at LB he will be expected to gain lots of muscle mass which would end that dream 🙁

    Yeah thats was very similar to what Johnson did against us. He has the ability to have the ball stick to his feet regardless of how fast he is going or how much he is dancing

    Having said that I’d still sign Johnson come summer haha

    Ed – we’ve had such a good season? Jesus man, we have escaped the drop by the skin of our teeth. WBA have escaped much more impressively than us, proving what you can do with the right man in charge, and not the 3rd rate pillock we have.

    Dan Gosling played as a RB when he was at Plymouth Argyle and for part of his Everton career.
