Real Madrid fullback Krol wants Newcastle move

Real Madrid left-back Krzysztof Krol has revealed Newcastle United and Atalanta are chasing him.

And the 20-year-old seems keen to opt for the Magpies - because of the prospect of first-team football in "the best league in the world".

Newcastle scouts spotted Krol playing for Poland at the Under-20 World Cup in Canada this summer.

And Krol insists that United have now made him an offer which he is considering alongside the chance to move to Italy.

"I have some offers, and the latest have come from Newcastle and Atalanta," Krol told the Sunday Sun.

"At Real, it's not easy to break through. The coach has Gabriel Heinze and the Brazilian, Marcelo - both play in my position."

He added: "The Premiership is the best league in the world. Moreover, I'd be a first-team player at Newcastle."
