iBet: A look at the Transfer Market moves
Transfer Markets Update
There seems to be a bit of a lull in the transfer rumour mill at the moment, which means it’s a good time to take a sane look at the prices being offered about the big players. Wayne Rooney has been on the drift to leave Manchester of late and it’s now 4/5 that he will be there after the summer transfer window and even money they he’ll be on his bike, with Arsenal the favourites to grab his signature at 100/30.
Rumours about Cristiano Ronaldo being on his way from Real Madrid seem to be misplaced if the market it to be believed. He’s a best price of 1/5 to still be at the Spanish giants after the summer transfer window, although if you fancy him to move you can get 100/30 about him being at Manchester United for next season and 5/1 about him moving to North London and joining his old boss at Chelsea.
Aston Villa’s Christian Benteke is a player the market can’t make its mind up about. He’s odds on at around 1/3 to leave, but also odds on at 4/6 to still be at the Midlands club after the summer transfer window. However, the bookies seem more certain that strike partner Darren Bent is on the move – he’s 3/1 to still be at Villa next season and 2/1 to be at Newcastle with Fulham (4/1) also firmly in the running. It’s 2/5 that Everton’s Marouane Fellaini is leaving, with Arsenal 10/11 to have secured his signature by next season.
Gareth Southgate has drifted out to 2/1 to be England’s next Under-21 manager with Michael Appleton now the favourite at 6/4 and Peter Taylor 6/1.
