Torres 2/1 To Walk…di Matteo 1/2 To Stay…you Bet Chelsea Set To Dominate England Squad

Fernando Torres is said to be assessing his options at Chelsea despite winning the Champions League and has made it clear that he is contemplating leaving should his role in the squad remain peripheral. William Hill think that he will still be a Chelsea player at the start of next season, offering 4/11 that he starts next season at Chelsea, although the 2/1 that he leaves is the shortest price on him exiting since he joined the club.

“Torres is reportedly far from happy at Chelsea ad has revealed he would be open to a transfer, but would there be any club willing to part with around £50 million to sign a misfiring striker?” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly.

Roberto Di Matteo is reportedly being given serious consideration by the Chelsea hierarchy, but despite this and his masterminding of victory in the Champions League, he can still be backed at 1/2 with Hills to get the manager’s job on a permanent basis. Fabio Capello is 5/2 with Pep Guardiola and Jose Mourinho 8/1.

“Despite winning the trophy most coveted by Roman Abramovic, he still remains relatively backable at 1/2 and he finds himself uncertain of his future at Chelsea,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly.

Roy Hodgson has stated that he wants Chelsea’s players to continue their Champions League form into the European Championships and Hills offer 2/1 that all four Chelsea players in the England squad start the first match against France. The favourite, however, is three of the four at 4/5. For none or one of those players to start is offered at 14/1.

Spurs missed out on Champions League football despite finishing fourth in the League and there could well be a exodus from White Hart Lane, with Luka Modric cut to leave the club from 6/5 to 5/6. Gareth Bale is the same price to have left the club with Van der Vaart 9/4 to leave.

Next permanent Chelsea manager: 1/2 Roberto Di Matteo; 5/2 Fabio Capello; 8/1 Pep Guardiola; 8/1 Jose Mourinho; 10/1 Harry Redknapp; 14/1 Laurent Blanc; 14/1 Rafa Benitez; 16/1 Joachim Low; 20/1 BAR

Players at Spurs on first day of next season:

Modric: 5/6 yes; 5/6 no
Bale: 5/6 yes; 5/6 no
Van der Vaart: 1/3 yes; 9/4 no

Fernando Torres still at Chelsea on the first day of next season: 4/11 yes; 2/1 no

Didier Drogba still at Chelsea on the first day of next season: 6/5 yes; 8/13 no

Frank Lampard to be at Chelsea on first day of next season: 1/6 yes; 7/2 no

Number of Chelsea players in England’s starting XI vs France: 14/1 none/one; 7/2 two; 4/5 three; 2/1 four

English side in Champions League Final 2012/13: 5/6 yes; 5/6 no

What Now For Blackburn? Relegation More Likely Than Winning Championship

Blackburn suffered relegation at the hands of Wigan and William Hill make Rovers 10/1 to go down to League one next season. They are 16/1 to win the league and 4/1 to win promotion by any means. Relegation often means that a number of star players could be released to balance the books and Hills are odds on about Yakubu (5/6), Paul Robinson (1/2) and David Dunn (8/13) all having left the club by the start of next season.

“Martin Olsson and Junior Hoilett look as though they are already planning their exit strategies and they may just be the start of the exodus with many big names tipped to leave this summer,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly.

Steve Kean is 1/5 to no longer be in charge of Blackburn on the first day of next season (10/3 that he is still there).

The relegation dogfight now goes down to the final day with Bolton needing a win at the Britannia Stadium and counting on Manchester City beating QPR. The Wanderers are 4/11 to go down, with QPR 2/1.

Blackburn next season:

Championship Outright – 16/1
Relegation: 10/1
Promotion – 4/1

Steve Kean at Rovers first day of next season: 1/5 no; 10/3 yes

Will players still be at Blackburn on the first day of next season:

YAK – YES 5/6 NO 5/6
ROBINSON – YES 6/4 NO 1/2
DUNN – YES 6/5 NO 8/13
DANN – YES 8/13 NO 6/5

Premier League Relegation:
4/11 Bolton; 2/1 QPR
