Manchester United have emerged as surprise favourites to bring Newcastle United star Tim Krul in to the club, with speculation suggesting that former Netherlands manager Louis van Gaal is keen to be reunited with his former charge, as reported by GiveMeSport.com.
The website has seen the odds drop significantly for the Dutch shot stopper to join Man Utd, with bookie Paddy Power listing the Old Trafford club as 3/1 favourites to sign the Newcastle star. Juventus, Atletico Madrid and Napoli are among the other sides who are expected to sign Krul.
Krul has settled in at Newcastle over the years, firmly establishing himself as the first choice goalkeeper at the club, regularly putting on excellent displays to justify his place in the side.
With Newcastle struggling, however, and no end in sight to their problems, Krul might be more keen to move than he has been in recent seasons.
Man Utd are lacking in quality goalkeeping options aside from David De Gea, and may turn to Krul to alter that.
