Newcastle left-back Jose Enrique is back in Newcastle for training and reports at Benton say the Spaniard is in good spirits.
Jose Enrique – in good spirits
Whether that’s because he’s hoping for a big wage at some other club, we don’t know, but Newcastle have received no bids for the 25 year-old so far this summer.
And Newcastle are still willing to offer Jose £50K/week over a full five years to stay on Tyneside, and we wonder if he will get as good a deal elsewhere?
Of course we suppose it still possible that Jose decides to stay on Tyneside, and maybe Alan Pardew will have a long talk to him and try to convince him Newcastle are going places in the next year or two.
But it wouldn’t surprise us if Alan has already done that, and Newcastle already have definite targets lined up should Jose leave.
We have to think that if a club like Arsenal, as one example, came in for Jose and offered him European Champions League football, then he’ll be on his way, and that can happen at any time before September 1st of course.
But if Jose is to leave Newcastle it’s probably best for all concerned that it happens sooner rather than later, so Newcastle can bring in his replacement and that player can get bedded in, long before the season starts on August 13th against Arsenal at home.
Jose may be playing in that game, and we suppose there is a chance he could even be in the red and white colors of Arsenal, come to think of it.
