The Magpies forward has missed a number of games this season but has still managed to score 19 goals in all competitions. Newcastle have been widely tipped to sell players in the summer to ensure their compliance with Premier League financial regulations.

However, the Spaniard is concerned that Isak’s injury proneness could be an issue for any club he joins in the summer. Speaking to Grosvenor Sport, Enrique said: “The problem with Alexander Isak, and we’ve said this about him even when he was at Real Sociedad, is that he’s always injured. The way Newcastle want to play is with high intensity and pressing from the front and you can’t be expected to fulfil that if you’re getting three or four injuries every year.

He misses far too many games too. “I don’t understand how the owners with all their money have come along and bought the club yet they’re not being allowed to spend like Manchester City and Chelsea have done in the past. The reality is that they’re performing badly against FFP regulations and are going to have to sell someone.

“It’s not just a question of quality. I think Isak is that good that he can play for Liverpool or Manchester United, for example. But it’s a question of availability too.
