As we reported yesterday, it looks like Fabricio Coloccini will be moving to San Lorenzo this summer, and there’s a report today in TyCSports.com that he’s in negotiations on a deal to join the Buenos Aries based club.

The above is said to be a smartly dressed Fabricio Coloccini speaking to the President of San Lorenzo, Matías Lammens, about his move there.
The report says that Fabricio Coloccini is to return to San Lorenzo and that a deal has been reached with Newcastle, who have agreed to release the player one year before the end of his current contract.
They say that Fabricio has made a tour of Europe in his long career and played for Alaves, Atletico Madrid, Villarreal, Milan, Deportivo La Coruna and finally Newcastle, where’s he been playing since the summer of 2008.
So Newcastle have effectively made Coloccini a free agent, which he would have been if Steve McClaren hadn’t extended his contract for a year last summer.
They say in the report that this will be the first signing for San Lorenzo this summer and that Coloccini will reinforce the squad.
This has yet to be announced by Newcastle, but it makes sense and he was expected to join San Lorenzo this summer.
That will also get his massive £65K/week wages of the wage bill for the coming season.
A good and sensible move by Newcastle.
Fabricio played 263 times with 7 goals for Newcatsle during his eight seasons on Tyneside.
