News today that Liverpool manager is turning his attention to Manchester City left back Wayne Bridge.
Jose Enrique – which clubs are still interested?
Bridge is a decent player but has had a hard time of it getting first team games at Manchester City since he signed in January of 2009, and has also suffered many injuries while at Eastlands.
But he showed at West Ham that when he gets a decent run in a side, he’s still a good player, and it seems that Liverpool are now targeting the 35 times capped England International for their vacant left-back spot.
Liverpool were once after Jose Enrique, and then they went after Arsenal’s Gail Clichy, and may still be in for the French International should Clichy elect to leave the Emirates Stadium.
And of course there was news over the weekend that if Clichy does leave Arsenal, then manager Arsene Wenger may be interested in Jose Enrique, but there are still a few shoes to fall before we’ll know which – if any – clubs still remain interested in Enrique.
Of course one thing Newcastle do not want is for Enrique to be at Newcatsle come September but still refuse to sign a new deal at the club, which would allow Jose to become a free agent next summer, and he could leave for nothing.
Of course that’s also his legal right.
Our view on Jose is that if he wants to leave Newcastle he should, and he’s been a good and loyal player for four years at Newcastle, but it would also be good to get some money for him = to help bring in a replacement.
