Newcastle will give Jose Enrique two options this summer, either sign the new deal that;s been offered to him at Newcastle, or move to another club.
Jose Enrqiue – move on or sign new deal at Newcastle
That’s what Newcastle will hope happens this summer, and of course the club’s nightmare scenario is that Jose doesn’t move to a new club this summer, but he doesn’t sign a new contract either.
We say it’s a nightmare scenario for Newcastle, but on the other side of the coin, it’s completely within Jose’s rights to do just that.
It could mean Newcastle will lose at least £8M on Jose if that happens, and that’s the same reasoning why we expect Newcastle will want to move out Joey Barton this summer.
That’s so the club can get say £4M for him, and not lose him for nothing next summer.
Yes, we know it’s a big business now, and it’s only going to get better or worse, depending on the view you hold on business and football – if you don’t like it then believe us it’s going to get a lot worse.
The fact that Newcastle may start next season without Nolan, Barton and Enrique was almost unthinkable a short few months ago, but events have conspired that all three could have left come September.
And the more we think of the Kevin Nolan move to West Ham last week, the more we think he may be regretting making that move so quickly.
Oh well, you cannot say it’ s been a dull transfer window so far, and we’ve had just three weeks of June.
