Arsenal Will Gir-roud The Day They Sold Rvp

Robin van Persie looks set to sign for Manchester United and William Hill make him 8/11 to score more Premier League goals than Wayne Rooney and he is 5/6 to score 22 or more goals. Van Persie won last season’s PFA player of the year award and he is 7/2 to pick up the award again this season. The loss of van Persie could have an adverse effect on Arsenal and they are odds on, at 8/15 to finish lower than the third place they finished last season while Manchester United are 5/6 to score more than the 89 goals that they scored last term.

Van Persie is 8/1 to score four or more Premier League goals against his former club this season while he is 11/10 to outscore both Giroud and Podolski put together.

“It looks as though van Persie will hit the ground running for Manchester United and he could possibly reach a similar goals tally to what he approached last season while at the other end of the spectrum, without his goals, Arsenal’s grip on third spot may slip,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly.

There are a couple of names who could be elbowed out of Old Trafford following RVP’s arrival and Javier Hernandez is 7/2 to move to Arsenal from Manchester United and 9/2 to move to Spurs. Real Madrid have often been linked with the striker and he is 10/1 to move to the Bernabeu from Old Trafford. Dimitar Berbatov could also be on his way and Hills make QPR the 4/1 favourites to secure his signature upon him leaving Old Trafford.

You Bet Two Big Money Strikers Are On The Move

With Roberto Mancini all but ruling out a move for Robin van Persie this summer, William Hill have eased Manchester City’s odds of signing the Arsenal striker. Manchester United are in pole position at Even money to be Van Persie’s next club, with Italian champions Juventus 13/8. It seems to be a race between those three clubs with Barcelona fourth favourites at 20/1.

Despite Arsenal starting to make signings that could potentially keep RVP at the Emirates, it appears to be a case of too little, too late and he is 4/11 to have left the club by the start of the season.

“Rather surprisingly, Alex Ferguson has been very public in his desire to sign van Persie and this shows how desperate he is to get his man after Nasri snubbed the Reds for the Blues last year and it looks like he may well succeed,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly.

The other big name likely to be on the move this summer is Andy Carroll and William Hill offer 1/2 for his next club to be West Ham with Sam Allardyce reportedly keen on the big striker. He is 9/4 to return to Newcastle and 7/1 to join Aston Villa.

Robin van Persie next club: 1/1 Manchester United; 13/8 Juventus; 15/8 Manchester City; 20/1 Barcelona; 25/1 AC Milan; 25/1 PSG; 25/1 Real Madrid; 33/1 BAR

Robin van Persie to be at Arsenal on the first day of next season: 2/1 yes; 4/11 no

Transfer Window Set To Spark Betting Bonanza

Tevez, Borini, Barton, Adebayor & Forest Latest

After a slow transfer window so far, the summer has really warmed up with a number of huge transfer stories hitting the headlines. With Zlatan Ibrahimovic seemingly on his way to PSG, William Hill make AC Milan 5/6 to be the club with which Carlos Tevez is plying his trade at the end of the transfer window although current club, Manchester City, are the same price.

“Tevez performed a spectacular u-turn towards the end of last season by saying that he was at Manchester City for the long haul but with AC Milan seemingly willing to mould the team around him, the lure of Italy may be too strong,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly.

Liverpool have reportedly had a transfer offer for Fabio Borini accepted by Roma and William Hill make the Italian striker 10/3 second favourite to be Liverpool’s leading scorer next season behind 6/4 Luis Suarez. He is also 6/4 to score more than 10 goals next season.

QPR’s Joey Barton may face the ignominy of dropping down a division with Blackburn apparently keen on taking the midfielder on loan. William Hill make Rovers Even money to be Barton’s next club, with ambitious Nottingham Forest 7/4 second favourites.

“Barton is ruled out of the first 12 games of the season, which will take him up to November, which would then allow a Championship side to swoop for him outside of the transfer window,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly.

Emmanuel Adebayor looks set to sign for Spurs and William Hill are offering 2/1 that he scores two or more goals against Arsenal.

Glenn Hoddle is the 4/6 favourite to be named as the next permanent Nottingham Forest job, with Roy Keane (backed in from 8/1 to 2/1) as the second favourite. Mick McCarthy has also been well backed at 9/4 while Thursday’s odds on favourite, Darren Ferguson, is out to 9/2.

Carlos Tevez club after transfer window (loans count): 5/6 AC Milan; 5/6 Manchester City; 8/1 PSG; 8/1 Inter Milan; 10/1 Real Madrid; 16/1 Juventus; 20/1 Anzhi Makhachkala; 33/1 Chelsea

Borini EPL goals: 5/4 under 8 goals; 5/2 8-10 goals; 6/4 over 10 goals

Top Liverpool EPL scorer in 2012/13 season: 6/4 Suarez; 10/3 Borini; 7/2 Carroll; 6/1 Gerrard…others on request

Joey Barton next club (loan deals count / void if hasn’t transferred/loaned by winter transfer window): 1/1 Blackburn; 7/4 Nottingham Forest; 5/1 Leeds; 10/1 Newcastle

Adebayor goals vs Arsenal (must be a registered EPL player after summer transfer window): 10/11 none; 11/4 one; 2/1 two or more

Next permanent Nottingham Forest manager: 4/6 Glenn Hoddle; 2/1 Roy Keane; 9/4 Mick McCarthy; 9/2 Darren Ferguson; 10/1 Alex McLeish; 16/1 Harry Redknapp; 16/1 Sven Goran Eriksson; 25/1 BAR

Carroll Cut For Kop-chop…borini Backed To Rejoin Brendan

Brendan Rodgers wants to stamp his mark on the Liverpool squad and William Hill are now betting on which players will come and which ones will go. With a bid for Fabio Borini confirmed by Roma, the Italian is 2/7 to move to Anfield before the end of the transfer window. Another name who has been widely mooted with a move to Liverpool is that of Clint Dempsey and he is 5/4 to join the Rodgers Revolution. Other potential signings include Gaston Ramirez at 6/4, Matt Jarvis at 9/2, Scott Sinclair at 4/1 with Darren Bent and Mark Davies at 6/1 each.

On the other side of the coin, there could be a couple of players on the move, with Andy Carroll perhaps the highest profile of the lot. William Hill have cut him slightly from 4/1 to 11/4 to go, with AC Milan 6/1 to have signed him by September 1st. Alberto Aquilani has enjoyed two successful years in Italy whilst being on loan from Liverpool and he is 8/15 to leave Liverpool by the close of the transfer window. Joe Cole is 2/1, Martin Skrtl 5/1 and Charlie Adam 11/4.

“Rodgers has claimed that everyone will have the chance to prove themselves but the long ball to Andy Carroll will undoubtedly be banished to the annals of Anfield history and that could mean the man himself may also become redundant,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly.

LA LIGA: NEW FACES BUT RIVALRIES STILL THE SAME?
With the announcement of the Spanish La Liga fixtures today, Hills make champions Real Madrid the 4/5 favourites to regain the title. They meet Valencia in their opening match but their games against Barcelona in October and March will provoke the most betting interest. William Hill offer 5/1 that Barcelona pick up six points from the two encounters, 6/1 that Real Madrid do so and 7/4 that the two teams pick up three points each.

Messi is 4/5 to score more goals than Ronaldo, while Ronaldo is offered at 10/11 to outscore Messi. Ronaldo to be top goal scorer and Real Madrid to win La Liga is 9/4 with Hills whilst the same bet with Messi and Barcelona is offered at 11/4.

Who will sign for Liverpool by the end of transfer window:
Borini : 2/7 Yes, 5/2 No.
Dempsey: 5/4 Yes, 4/7 No.
Gaston Ramirez: 6/4 Yes, 1/2 No.
Matt Jarvis: 9/2 Yes, 1/8 No.
Darren Bent: 6/1 Yes, 1/12 No.
Mark Davies: 6/1 Yes, 1/12 No.

Who will leave Liverpool by the end of transfer window:
Aquilani: 8/15 yes, 11/8 No.
Cole: 2/1 Yes, 4/11 No.
Carroll: 11/4 Yes, 1/4 No.
Adam: 11/4 Yes, 1/4 No.
Skrtl: 5/1 Yes, 1/9 No.

La Liga 2012: 4/5 Real Madrid, 1/1 Barcelona, 50/1 Malaga, 66/1 Valencia, 80/1 BAR.

Goals Match Bet (La Liga): 4/5 L Messi, 10/11 C Ronaldo.

Barcelona Points Vs Real Madrid (La Liga): 7/4 Three, 7/2 Four, 7/2 One, 5/1 Six, 6/1 None, 11/1 Two.

Real Madrid Points Vs Barcelona (La Liga): 7/4 Three, 3/1 One, 10/3 Four, 5/1 None, 6/1 Six, 11/1 Two.

9/4: Cristiano Ronaldo to be top league goal scorer and Real Madrid to win La Liga.

11/4: Lionel Messi to be top league goal scorer and Barcelona to win La Liga.

AC Milan and West Ham lead the race for his signature with both sides 11/4 to be his next club, with Newcastle 8/1 and PSG and Malaga 14/1.
