Report: Celtic Join Chase For Barcelona’s Bojan Krkic

Barcelona have yet to make a decision about where the young striker will be next term, however, Celtic have added their name to the list of admirers.
Celtic have joined the race to take Bojan Krkic on loan for a season if the starlet is told he should leave Barcelona in the summer to gain first team experience.

Blackburn Rovers, Villarreal and Sevilla have enquired about his availability and have been told that the decision is down to coach Pep Guardiola.

The 18-year-old striker wants to stay at Barca in the long-term, however, having seen his chances of playing regularly this season limited he could now spend a year elsewhere.

“He is happy at Barcelona but needs to play more," Krkic's agent, Zoran Vekic, is quoted as saying by the Scottish Sun.

“We must find a solution that suits everyone and anything is possible this summer.”

After being promoted to the first team at Barcelona by Frank Rijkaard the forward felt he would start to play regularly under former ‘B’ team boss Guardiola, however, the reverse occurred.

Krkic has spent most of the current campaign on the bench as the Blaugrana have reached the Champions League final as well as winning the domestic league and cup double.

Relations between Barcelona and Celtic are strong and Catalan midfielder Marc Crosas is spending the current campaign on loan at Parkhead.
