Carroll Odds On For First Time To Leave Liverpool

Liverpool have been fielding bids for Andy Carroll from all over the UK as it was revealed that Newcastle had joined Fulham and West Ham in the race for the striker and William Hill make the Magpies 7/4 favourites to be Carroll’s next club. West Ham and Fulham are 11/4 and 6/1 respectively. After initially making clear their wish to sign him, news reports linking AC Milan with a move for Carroll have died down and they are now offered at 10/1 to be his next club.

William Hill think an exit for the Liverpool targetman is ever more likely, with Hills making him 5/6 to have left the club by the start of the season.

Andy Carroll next club: 7/4 Newcastle; 11/4 West Ham; 6/1 Fulham; 6/1 Aston Villa; 10/1 AC Milan; 16/1 Malaga; 20/1 PSG; 20/1 Arsenal; 20/1 Tottenham; 25/1 Chelsea; 25/1 Reading; 25/1 Ajax; 25/1 Stoke; 25/1 Norwich; 25/1 Manchester City; 25/1 Manchester United; 33/1 Bayern Munich; 40/1 Inter Milan; 40/1 Everton; 40/1 Sunderland; 66/1Real Madrid; 66/1 Barcelona…others on request

Drogba Backed To Stay At Chelsea But Who Else Is Sniffing Around?

Didier Drogba may be out of contract at Chelsea, but William Hill do not think that necessarily mean that the talismanic striker will be leaving Stamford Bridge, offering Even money that he starts next season at the Blues. Barcelona have reportedly targeted Drogba and have said they would be willing to offer a two year contract to the player and they are the 2/1 second favourites to take the Ivorian for the start of next season. Hills also offer 5/1 that he signs for Real Madrid and the same price that he goes to PSG. Another option could be for him to join his former teammate, Nicolas Anelka in China and he is 6/1 to sign for a side over there, while Manchester City are 12/1.

“Despite his advancing years, Drogba is still coveted by the top teams around the world and should Chelsea fail to offer him what he wants, there will be no lack of suitors for him this summer,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly.

William Hill Odds:

Didier Drogba club at the start of next season: 1/1 Chelsea; 2/1 Barcelona; 5/1 Real Madrid; 5/1 PSG; 12/1 Manchester City
