Chelsea are lining up a £15million move for Newcastle United goalkeeper Tim Krul this summer to usher in a new era at Stamford Bridge.

Roman Abramovich has agreed to bankroll a big-money offer for the 24-year-old Dutchman after growing concerns at Chelsea over the form of Petr Cech.

Chelsea’s determination to land Krul on £90,000-a-week wages has knocked Sunday’s FA Cup semi-final opponents Tottenham out of the race for the highly rated keeper.

Spurs will now look abroad to find a No 1 to compete with veteran Brad Friedel next season.

Newcastle United, who are competing for a Champions League spot, tied up Krul to a long-term deal earlier this year but owner Mike Ashley prides himself on being an ‘expensive seller’ and will not stand in Krul’s way at the right price for the club.
