There is news just been posted on the San Loremzo FC site (their official twitter account) that Fabrico Coloccini will not be joining their roster – so it looks like Fabricio will be staying at Newcastle.
Fabricio Coloccini – staying at Newcastle
The is the short statement from Lorenzo FC:
“Finally, after long negotiations, we announced that Fabricio Coloccini not join the roster of Lorenzo” “It was not possible to release the Newcastle player and therefore the club will look for another alternative to strengthen the defense.”
There has been uncertainty at Newcastle for several weeks now regarding the future of the Newcastle captain, so if this news is true – it’s even more good news for Newcastle fans this week -a dn indeed the news is being reported elsewhere – so we assume it’s true.
Fabricio Coloccini has some personal problem, and his wife and two kids have returned to Argentina, and Fabricio made it clear to Newcastle that he wanted to quit the club he has been at almost five years, to return to Argentina.
It was only last March that Fabricio signed a new contract – said to be worth £60K/week – that will keep him at Newcastle until the summer of 2016, but of course we don’t know if he will be returning to Argentina this summer.
But the San Lorenzo statement seems to suggest they will be looking for other defenders, and they had said Coloccini would have to join them this week, or else their pursuit of him would end.
This is not official news yet, but the statement has been posted on the FC San Lorenzo site – and we are hoping for the best – and we assume Newcastle will be making a statement shortly, although his father usually beats everybody to it.
But it sounds like more good news for Newcastle.
