There is news coming through from the Argentine media, that Newcastle are to cancel Fabricio Coloccini’s contract tomorrow.
Fab Coloccini - will Newcastle cancel Argentine’s contract – surely not!
That presumably means that Coloccini can now get his wish and join San Lorenzo, where his father works, but we caution that the news is a bit sketchy but there are a couple of reports saying that Newcastle will indeed cancel Coloccini’s contract and he can leave when they meet with him tomorrow.
One of the reports is in Argentina’s biggest selling daily newspaper, Clarin, which is reporting Newcastle will cancel Coloccini’s contract on Wednesday.
So where do Newcastle go from here with Colo and Demba Ba having left in January?
However it is not clear whether the report is something the Argentina media are hoping for, or whether it is actual real news. We have to think it’s the former, but we are expecting a definitive decision in the next day or two.
We have a hard job believing that Newcastle would do this – why would they want to let Colo go for nothing – when they can get £5M for him in the summer?
And if this is true it will be yet another bombshell to hit Newcastle in January – say it aint so!
