£100 Million Transfer Chest For Avb?

Reports in the press are suggesting that Andre Villas Boas will have a hefty transfer budget to spend on new players as Tottenham look to catapult themselves back into the Champions League and Hills offer 7/4 that he is successful in doing so.

First the exits: Luka Modric is 4/6 to move to Spain and join Real Madrid, 5/2 for a Chelsea move and 5/1 for a move up to Old Trafford. The other main player linked with a move is Jermain Defoe, who is 9/2 to join QPR, 7/1 for an Aston Villa transfer and 8/1 to go to Liverpool or back to West Ham.

AVB has already signed his first player in Gylfi Sigurdsson and others are expected to follow shortly. Portugal midfielder Joao Moutinho who worked with AVB at Porto is 2/1 to be at Tottenham when they face up against Newcastle on the first day of next season. Marseille striker Loic Remy is 2/1 to join and 4/11 not to, whilst Russian Euro 2012 star Alan Dzagoev is 5/1 to be there and 1/9 he won’t.

“It looks like Spurs will be one of the big spenders this summer and in order to fund the spending spree we expect a couple of big name exits,” said Hill’s spokesman Rupert Adams.

Could Moses Lead Chelsea To The Promised Land Again?

With Chelsea having had their first approach for Victor Moses rebuffed William Hill question where he will be at the beginning of next season. So often used to getting their way, Chelsea are 4/7 to land the young striker and 11/8 he will still be at Wigan.

“Abramovich can quite often get like a dog with a bone, as his dogged pursuit of Jose Mourinho has shown in the past and we think that the same determination will prove too much for Wigan this summer,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly.

Chelsea have already signed Eden Hazard and Marko Marin this summer and seem to be on the hunt to strengthen their Champions League winning squad. William Hill believe that 3-4 new signings (4/6) will start on the first day of next season for the Blues. 0-2 is 7/4 and 5+ is 5/1.

Andre Villas Boas is the 2/7 favourite with William Hill to take over at Tottenham despite the clubs links with France boss Laurent Blanc, who is 3/1 for the job. Luka Modric is 8/11 to still be at White Hart Lane for the start of next season. Gareth Bale is 4/9 and Rafael Van der Vaart is 8/15.

“Overlooking his Chelsea experience, AVB has a great managerial record and it would seem that some of the top players will stay to be part of the revolution,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly.

Victor Moses’ Club on the first day of next Season: Chelsea 4/7, Wigan 11/8, QPR 10/1, Arsenal 12/1, Liverpool 16/1, Spurs 16/1, Man City 20/1, Man Utd 20/1

How many new players signed by Chelsea will start first game of next season?

7/4 0-2
4/6 3-4
5/1 5+

Next Permanent Tottenham Manager: 2/7 Villas Boas, 3/1 Blanc, 10/1 Klinsmann, 12/1 Moyes, 12/1 Rangnick, 14/1 Sherwood, 16/1 Martinez, 20/1 Benitez, 25/1 BAR

Still at Tottenham on the first day of next season:

8/11 Modric (1/1 Not)
4/9 Bale (13/8 Not)
8/15 Van der Vaart (11/8 Not)

Will Spurs Exodus Begin As Chelsea Hope To Keep Hold Of Stars

Following Chelsea’s fantastic victory against Bayern Munich in the Champions League Final, William Hill have cut the odds of Roberto Di Matteo bagging the Chelsea job on a permanent basis from 4/7 to 1/2. Fabio Capello who was as short as 2/1 on Friday is now 5/2 second favourite. Tottenham, who missed out on Champions League football on the back of Chelsea’s victory, are 10/1 to lose their manager to Chelsea.

With Spurs missing out on Champions League football next season, Hills are now looking at some of the big names at White Hart Lane and whether they will stay or go. Gareth Bale is coveted in both Spain and Italy is 5/6 to have left Spurs by the start of next season (5/6 to still be there). Luka Modric has no lack of suitors although he is 8/13 to still be at Spurs with Rafael van der Vaart 1/3 to stay.

“Despite Spurs missing out on Champions League football in the cruellest of fashions it looks as though they will hold on to the majority of their stars,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly.

John Terry lifted the Champions League trophy, despite being suspended and amidst much criticism, but Hills think that he will be backed to the hilt by his club, offering 1/8 he is still at Chelsea. His Chelsea teammate, Didier Drogba, had a fantastic night and he is 8/11 to stay at Chelsea and be there at the start of next season.

Andre Villas Boas is the new favourite at 6/4 to be named as the next permanent Liverpool manager, with Roberto Martinez 2/1, Rafael Benitez 6/1 and Harry Redknapp at 7/1.

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 Rafael Benitez; 16/1 Joachim Low; 20/1 BAR

To be a Spurs player next season:

Modric: 8/13 yes; 6/5 no
Bale: 5/6 yes; 5/6 no
Van Der Vaart: 1/3 yes; 9/4 no

John Terry to be at Chelsea next season: 1/8 yes; 9/2 no

Didier Drogba to be at Chelsea at the start of next season: 8/11 yes; 1/1 no

Chelsea and Spurs to qualify for the Champions League next season: 9/4

Premier League 2012/13 match bet: 2/5 Chelsea; 7/4 Spurs

Next permanent Liverpool manager: 6/4 Andre Villas Boas; 2/1 Roberto Martinez; 6/1 Rafael Benitez; 7/1 Harry Redknapp; 7/1 Brendan Rodgers; 10/1 Didier Deschamps; 16/1 Michael Laudrup; 16/1 Fabio Capello; 20/1 BAR

Fer-nando’s No Chicken When It Comes To Scoring…want Away Players Specials

Andre Villas Boas confirmed that he is unconcerned about the pre-season form of Fernando Torres and William Hill think that his assurances are founded, offering 2/1 that he manages between 16 and 20 goals this season. He is 7/4 to score 21 to 25 goals. Hills also think that Torres has the full support of his manager and he is 9/4 to start 26-30 Premier League games this season.

“It would be fair to say that Torres endured a rocky patch at the start of his Chelsea career, but the odds suggest that Villas Boas will have faith in him and in return, the goals will flow,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly.

Torres Premier League Starts: 10/3 Under 10; 7/1 11-15; 6/1 16-20; 5/2 21-25; 9/4 26-30; 9/2 Over 30

Torres Premier League Goals: 12/1 Under 6;8/1 6-10; 4/1 11-15; 2/1 16-20; 7/4 21-25; 5/1 Over 25

Should I Stay Or Should I Go Now…Want Away Players On The Move?

William Hill are offering a market on whether the all four of the Premier League’s high profile want away players leave their clubs by the end of the Summer transfer window. Hills go 9/2 about all four of Tevez, Nasri, Fabregas and Modric having left their clubs by the 31st August 2011 .

Hills are also offering 6/4 that Cesc Fabregas is the first of the four to go, while Carlos Tevez is 13/8 to do so. It would appear that Arsenal have more hope of keeping Nasri than Fabregas and he is offered at 10/3 to be the first of the four to go, while Modric is 6/1.

“These four players have all shown their desire to move to pastures new and itcertainly looks like a possibility that all four will be gone by the time the transfer window slams shut at the end of August,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly.

Who will go first: 6/4 Fabregas; 13/8 Tevez; 10/3 Nasri; 6/1 Modric

All four to have changed clubs by the end of the transfer window (August 31st 2011): 9/2 yes; 1/8 no

Romelu Lukaku appears to be the favourite to go to the Bridge, however, with the Anderlecht youngster 4/6 to make the move.

All of the nations are odds on to have at least one player start the first game of the tournament.

Tottenham Face Uphill Struggle To Match Champs League Heroics Next Season

Tottenham’s European dream ended at the hands of Real Madrid tonight and William Hill are offering 9/4 that Spurs play Champions League football next season. Tottenham have progressed incredibly under Harry Redknapp and he is 6/4 to become the next England manager. Despite Redknapp’s assurances that his team will not be being split up, the lure of Champion’s League may prove to be too much for some of Spur’s biggest players and Modric is 13/8 to leave the club before the first game of next season, while Van der Vaart is 9/4 and Bale 11/10 to do the same.

“Tottenham have really lit up the competition this season, but their 4-0 victory, that was very well backed pre match, failed to materialise and the odds suggest that Spurs will struggle to get back into the competition for next year,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly.

Real Madrid and Barcelona will now face each other in the Champions League Semi-Final, in what will be one of four El Classico games before the end of the season and Hills offer 33/1 that Real Madrid win them all and 10/1 that Barcelona do so.

William Hill Odds:

Champions League Outright: 1/1 Barcelona; 5/2 Manchester United; 3/1 Real Madrid; 12/1 Schalke

William Hill have installed Wayne Rooney as 5/2 favourite to win the PFA Player of the Year Award. ‘Wayne’s main rivals, Cesc Fabregas and Didier Drogba may suffer for games missed for differing reasons, and with the World Cup looming up it would certainly be a boost for England if one of their players could win the award’ said Hill’s spokesman Graham Sharpe. ‘However, with the award being won by a Man U player for the past three seasons that could work against Wayne’
