News in the People today that Newcastle United are again interested Deportivo La Coruna’s Â£10M-rated Argentine defender Fabricio Coloccini.
Fabricio Coloccini – Newcastle also interested last summer
There was news last summer and even before that, that Newcastle were tracking the Argentine International who looked very good playing for Argentina in the 2006 World Cup in Germany.
Newcastle and Manchester City are said to be battling it out for Fabricio, whose agent will talk with both clubs this coming week.
Collocini is 6’0″ tall and has appeared 99 times for Deportivo and 27 times for Argentina. He was born in CÃ³rdoba, Argentina.
He went to AC Milan in 1999 but was loaned out to a number of clubs before he joined Deportivo in 2004.
Collocini is a good player, but since he’s untested in the Premier League, he would still be a risk in that sense.
We found that out with David Rozehnal last season, who plays very well for the Czech Republic, but was found lacking in the physical part of the game in the Premier League last season.
