It’s a move that is a tad hard to fathom but one imagines speculation over such a bid is directly related to the fact that the 26 year old was part of Louis van Gaal’s 2014 World Cup squad, though it’s worth noting the Magpies star wasn’t his first choice starter.

Indeed any move to bring Krul to Old Trafford would surely see the keeper play second fiddle to David de Gea in much the same way the St James’ Park man was left to act as back-up to Ajax’s Jasper Cillessen in Brazil.

Krul may certainly be considering his options given Newcastle United’s poor start to the Premier League campaign, with boss Alan Pardew under pressure after failing to secure a single win from their opening four domestic league fixtures.

Newcastle United brought in Krul from Den Haag in 2005 and after loan moves to Falkirk and Carlisle United the 6ft 4in keeper became a regular at the north-east side and has made a total of 150 appearances for the club.
