For the 645th time this season the headlines read: "Liverpool step up their pursuit of Jose Enrique". Is anybody CARED anymore? "The Reds will step up their long-running pursuit of Jose Enrique this week after learning Newcastle United are ready to reluctantly cash in on the unsettled Spaniard. "But with manager Alan Pardew recently admitting the left-back had indicated an unwillingness to sign a new contract at St James’ Park, Liverpool are keen to test Newcastle’s resolve. "The Reds are still on the look out for a new left-back after losing out to Manchester City in the race for Gael Clichy. "Newcastle have been determined to stand firm over the price, but Pardew is getting to the stage where he would like to know which players he has with him going in to the new season. "Enrique, who has rejected an improved extension to a contract that runs out at the end of next season, wants to move on and Pardew would prefer to have the money to reinvest in his squad." Nothing there we haven't read a million times before.
