Mirror Football is reporting that Newcastle’s left back Jose Enrique is now looking to move on in the summer. The Newcastle defender is being courted by Liverpool, Arsenal and Bayern Munich and has stalled on contract talks until the end of the season.
The Spanish star has only a year left on his current contract and Newcastle may have little choice but to cash in if a bid in the region of £12m came in during the summer; Newcastle signed Enrique for a fee in the region of £6.3m.
Enrique himself has seemingly opened up the possibility of a move when asked about his future plans. He is understood to want to prove himself in the Champions League and push his own international ambitions; Enrique has yet to make an appearance for Spain but has played for his country at U16, U20 and U21 level.
Enrique has praised Newcastle fans by saying “they love football more than their wives” and says after a difficult first season he is now settled and content. Enrique said on his Newcastle future “Next season is my last season here. I concentrate (on) playing my games and wait to the summer, or maybe next summer. We don’t speak about the contract yet. I don’t speak about it yet, as I am happy. I am very happy here.”
Enrique has become a huge hit at Newcastle and proved himself as one of the best left backs in the country.
