Report – Newcastle To Hold Talks For Young Serie A Forward


Italian journalist Nicolo Shira is reporting that Leeds and Newcastle are after Inter Milan forward Facundo Colidio.

Facundo Colidio is a 19-year-old Argentinian who joined Inter Milan from Boca Juniors in 2017 for around €8m. So this is a youngster who was highly thought of by Inter Milan when they signed him as a young 17-year-old for what is a decent fee.

The report in the above tweet is from fcinternews.it and claims that Newcastle are set to meet with Inter officials about the player on Friday. Inter Milan reportedly would be willing to let the player go for around the same amount that they paid for him. So it looks like a fee between €7-8m may be enough to get the young striker.

Italian clubs are usually stocked with youngsters and Inter Milan also have Eddy Salcedo coming through the ranks so maybe they will look to cash in on Colidio now.

He can play as either a centre-forward or on the left wing and scored 12 goals with 6 assists in the Italian youth league last season. The year before he was able to score 9 goals.

The report does mention that Leeds may have an edge but only because of their Argentinian coach Marcelo Bielsa. The youngster has been capped 9 times at the U20 level for Argentina with 3 goals.

We do remember another Facundo from Argentina who was part at Newcastle five years ago. Facundo Ferreyra was on loan from Shaktar Donestsk and failed to make an appearance for the first team.

Here is some video of this Facundo who looks a bright prospect.

    It certainly looks like the pro Ashley Apathetics are out in force and doubling down on the PR to get those tickets sold – or is it?

    I think it’s more simple than that, it’s more like the opportune time for the most pathetic contributors to return and seek gratification and cameraderie among like minded begrudged idiots for the harsh treatment they received in the past for their wayward and ill advised statements. They aren’t real fans, they’re just haunters of the blog spewing their bitterness and revelling in the turmoil this club is in. Trolls basically.

    Easy to spot difficult to tolerate.

    Everyone, including Ashley, wants Ashley to sell the club.

    I’m surprised we haven’t seen catchy lately (or have we?) As here seems to be more conversation about Benitez now that he is no longer relevant than there was when he was manager. Curious thing to mention isn’t it, a former manager? I can only think of one reason to do it and that’s to demoralise anyone who has anti-ashley sympathies. Benitez obviously represents the antithesis to Ashleys plan, so let’s constantly destroy his legacy. Odd that a manager who consolidated a decidedly mediocre under budget squad and who has won most of footballs major honours gets dogs and yet we are told to give Steve (what have we done to deserve him) Bruce in charge with not a squeak about his decidedly pathetic nonentity managerial career. Not a word. Except “give the guy a chance”. At what? Relegation? 15th? I wonder how long before he gets balanced but fair appraisal? Hmmm

    I’ve been rounded on as being verbose, well ok fair enough I like to get carried away ha ha but – can there be anything more pompous and self satisfied than the usual bitter pills who slap each other on the back congratulating themselves on their stupendously fantastic posts in which they label the majority of bloggers as morons, idiots and fools? That’s the winning argument right here – “we are right and you are wrong because you are thick and stupid”. Good debate.

    Glad to see some perspective of rafa. I got pilloried for it by guys like Tarquin who know little about the game in reality. Also glsd to see someone reference the playing of sissoko on the left wing. Not before time. I wanted rafa to stay for the long term to build the club but in reality he isnt famous for youth development, but for defensive football and getting a lot from average teams. Here are some rafa and Steve bruce opinions that i hold, you may not agree.

    – Kind man, very decent. Foodbanks, cancer victim at training etc
    -Plays pretty dour football in a changing football world
    -Is a populist and loves being the leader, somewhat vainly on a club with a huge fanbase
    – Ashley and rafa hated each other
    – The transfer budget was decent if he had stayed.
    -He’ll never be fit to be mentioned in the same breath as keegan or bobby
    -He argued with every chairman he had, and he plays the populist Robin Hood card
    -despite assertions by halfwits, he was never going to get a job like arsenal or spurs
    -some of the tactical displays we saw were rubbish. Think sunderland home, villa away, fulham away in the early days. Cardiff home last season, and how identical his football was to fat sam, everton. Quite an eye opener.
    -he was great for us and its crazy we lost him
    -he clearly loves money or he would have waited for a european ‘project’, but no decent clubs came in for him as far as we can see
    -ashley is a bastard but Bruce might manage upwards better than rafa
    – it was great to havehim here and his initial loyalty was admirable
    -bruce needs to be given a chance, we have no alternative on that score
    -he is doing ok so far and the 442 dinosaur comments may not hold water from what we can see, and have heard.
    -The players seem ok with him
    -As the chant says, Newcastle United, will never be defeated.
    -HTL

    Munster Mag – some good points , don’t agree with them all but do agree with comments like “plays pretty dour football” and “some of tactical displays were rubbish” – Rafa got the job done, but sometimes we were awful to watch.
    Home games where we had like 30% possession etc….

    Above all else, Rafa was unreservedly trying to change the business culture of the club, which so sadly fails to provide for the football side. He wasn’t perfect, no one is, but he certainly was excellent and our champion and we’ll very likely suffer now he’s gone. Gone he is though, and we must move on.

    My there are a lot of angry posters on this site, the last few days have shown a real decline in people’s standards as regards inappropriate posts, language that shows no respect to Ed blog rules.

    People may have a go at me, but Toon 22, who may have good intentions, is becoming a bore and seems intent on disrupting this blog. He causes a lot of trouble on this site by his accusations of shills, and being multiples. ( before you start I’m not Jib). When he is off site football talk returns. I know people will say just skip past his posts, but not all will and that’s when it’s starts all over again.

    This site was the best there is but almost since Rafa left the hatred has become unbearable. We have lost managers before and although upsetting, we move on. It’s what we do. Remember Keegan left twice.

    I have already made my stand against Ashley by not renewing my season ticket and am now watching non league football.

    I don’t believe boycotting is the answer as this in itself will devide the supporters even more. He won’t be at the match, I think he knows he is not wanted, and do you honestly think that the rest of the country is bothered about us. The only way anything will work is, if supporters stay away from his shops at the ground and his other businesses.

    Frustration gets to the best of us, but don’t take it out on fellow supporters.

    “I don’t believe boycotting is the answer”

    I’m not sure what, if anything, is the answer. It’s been made quite clear to Ashley that the fans absolutely hate him and in return he’s made it quite clear that he doesn’t give a monkeys.

    You and the Ashley out group seem to be building up some momentum and will no doubt have realised that asking the ‘where’s the money gone’ questions could lead to a quick slap down from Bishop and his media chums.

    So, asking the where has it gone question’ll help Ashley enormously when they can point to the last two windows spend – £22m for Almiron and, £40m for Joemino, £22m for Maxi and more to come. The headline figure Bishop’ll trumpet will be £100m plus in the last year. Ask that question and the rug’s pulled right out from under the campaign.

    The media should be keen to pick up on a single figure average nett transfer spend over twelve years, free SD advertising for 10 of the last 12, merchandising revenue to SD, price hikes, no ambition, wheelie bins and paddling pools at a sub-standard training centre, a dilapidated SJP (but what about the newly painted parts?), lies, doubletalk, club for sale, his antics in Dubai, BZG, Keegan, Rafa etc etc

    Ashley’s there to be discredited but anticipate Bishop’s moves and have counter-moves prepared. Research, know your enemy and take the fight to Ashley.

    Howay the lads.

    But, since we are have another fight night.

    Toon22 never says anything about the team. It is all about taxes and calling everybody else shills. You can say “I hate Mike Ashley” and he will call you a KBA shill. Same thing, every day. Some on here think he is OK now because the takeover never happened. But then there were many who also were fanboys of Dubai Micky and are now fans of harassing Charley’s wife and kids at their house.

    #boycotts have never worked. Not even at Blackburn.
