We reported on the comments made by the San Lorenzo President yesterday, that he was going to meet with Fabricio Coloccini with a view to getting him to the Buenos Aries club this summer.
Mike Ashley – determined to keep Coloccini
But it seems Newcastle have heard this all before, and the same thing happened in January when there were lots of words coming from the President and Coloccini’s father, but there was never any firm bid made to Newcastle for the player.
There has been no contact made by President Matias Lammens with Newcastle so far this summer.
Mike Ashley has seen just how important Fab Coloccini is to Newcastle, and in the three games Colo played at the end of the season, Newcastle conceded only two goals, played well and pickled up a precious 4 points.
The news in the Newcastle Journal today is that Newcastle are far from impressed by the way San Lorenzo seem to do all their “bidding” through the media, and Newcastle are determined to keep the Argentine on Tyneside.
And before leaving for Argentina, Fabricio said nothing about moving to San Lorenzo, although his intentions are not clear, he talked about what Newcastle needed to do next season and how much better the new players will be.
There seems some hope that Newcastle can keep Colo at the club, and let’s face it, if Newcastle can do that it will be massive, as the Argentine has shown he’s now the real leader at Newcastle both on and off the field.
We need to keep Colo ar Newcastle and end this San Lorenzo nonsense as early as possible this summer.
