Lendoiro and Lotina will discuss this night the final conformation of the squad, but Depor’s president doesn’t want to lose time, it has been informed that he already started the contacts for Diego Colotto, defender that might replace Coloccini. Meanwhile, Taborda has an offer from the Bundesliga and the meeting for Pablo Amo was suspended.

It’s expected that President Augusto C?sar Lendoiro and coach Miguel ?ngel Lotina will have a meeting this night in order to define the squad for the season 2008/2009. One of the issues to be studied is who will replace Fabricio Coloccini after his departure to Newcastle United. The same Lotina appointed that he will put the name of his main candidate over the desk of the president. But it seems Lendoiro already started the contacts for this replacement: Diego Colotto (27).

According to La Voz de Galicia, Deportivo is hoping to close the deal during this week, the Galician paper even appoints the operation might be closed throughout this day. It was rumoured the transaction could reach the €4 million, but now La Voz reports the amount to be paid by Depor is reaching the $2.8 million (€1.86 million).

La Voz is convinced that Lendoiro and the president of Atlas de Guadalajara, Gustavo Montoya, already have an agreement, and that a key piece for this deal is Marcelo Lombilla, who is the new agent of Colotto and also the one that took Coloccini to Newcastle United. Apparently Lombilla is using this operation as compensation after he renounced to his part on Coloccini’s transfer. The Argentinean player already said he would see with good eyes a move to Europe.


During the past week it was informed that Maritimo Funchal was very interested in Sebasti??n Taborda and that the Portuguese club was hoping to close a loan deal during the weekend, but now the destiny of the Uruguayan striker might change its course. According to newspaper La Opini??n A Coru?a, the agent of the striker - Daniel Delgado- is close to present an offer coming from the Bundesliga. Proposition that will be studied during this week when the agent will travel to the city. The name of the German club wasn’t revealed but the agent said that it pleases the striker.


The highly expected meeting between Eduardo Bandr?s and Lendoiro didn’t take place, the presidents of Real Zaragoza and Deportivo had an appointment in order to negotiate the future of Pablo Amo, but Bandr?s had personal problems and cancelled his journey to La Coru?a. It was also expected that both presidents would discuss the cases of ?ngel Lafita and Pablo ?lvarez. Now this meeting will have to be rescheduled for the upcoming days.
