Summer Of Spending At City…who Will Take The Poisoned Chalice At Liverpool…becks And Giggs Back Together

Despite winning the Premier League this season, Manchester City are on the lookout for signings that will strengthen their team even further and William Hill think that Eden Hazard, despite rumours Chelsea are his favoured destination, will be at the top of their shopping list. The Belgian is 11/10 to move to Manchester City this summer, while Robin van Persie is 6/4, Falcao is 11/8, Thiago Silva 13/8 and both Luka Modric and Hulk 15/8. Of the two best players in the world, City are 4/1 to sign Ronaldo and 12/1 to sign Messi this summer.

“Manchester City are in a position to sign just about any player they want, although it does not appear that they will aim for the crème de la crème, instead opting for slightly more realistic options,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly.

Ryan Giggs has stated that he would love to play alongside David Beckham in the Team GB football side and Hills offer 2/1 that the pair start the first match of the Olympics for Stuart Pearce’s men (8/15 one starts and 4/1 neither do).

Every manager worth their salt appears not to want the Liverpool job at the moment and William Hill think that Roberto Martinez is the main man for the job and are now offering 11/8 that he is named as the next permanent boss at Anfield with Andre Villas Boas at 11/4.

“Liverpool do not seem to have the draw that they once did, whether that is because the targets they are going for would prefer Champions league football or whether they are worried about having to fill Kenny’s boots is hard to say,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly.
