Barcelona eyeing Newcastle keeper Krul

Barcelona are chasing Newcastle United goalkeeper Tim Krul.

Barcelona are chasing Newcastle United goalkeeper Tim Krul.

The Mirror says the Spanish giants were already on the lookout for a new No.1 with Victor Valdes on his way out of the Nou Camp this summer.

But back-up stopper Jose Pinto’s decision to follow Valdes’ lead by rejecting a new deal means Barca are now on the lookout for two top-class goalkeepers.

Juventus are eyeing Krul, and now Barca have joined them in looking at the Dutch keeper.

The Catalan club remain confident that their transfer ban – imposed because they had breached rules on the transfers of players aged under 18 – will at the very least be put on hold while an appeal is made.
