TalkSPORT is reporting this afternoon that European Champions Barcelona are keen on signing Newcastle United defender Jose Enrique.
Jose Enrique – couldn’t resist Barcelona surely
If that is true we think it would be hard for Enrique to turn down a move to the best club team on the planet, and back in his home country too,.
But that’s if the report is true, and we have no idea if it is true.
But if Enrique moved to Barcelona, and was in the first team he would walk into the full Spanish side, which is an ambition of his to play for the reigning World Champions – which is hardly surprising with a man of Jose’s abilities.
Hopefully, if Barcelona enter the race it will up the price too, with Liverpool apparently making their final offer of £8M for the player later this week.
It appears that Carlos Puyol will be out for another three months following knee surgery, and the news is that top manager Pep Guardiola is looking to bring in some defenders as cover.
If this news is indeed true there’s no way Newcastle will be able to hold onto Jose Enrique, and come to think of it, it would be good if Jose wasn’t playing in the Premier League too.
It would be very hard to blame Jose if he wanted to make this move – that’s if it’s all true of course. 😀
