Man Utd Transfers: Danny Not Nani To Stay At Old Trafford!

After a poor performance on Monday at Everton there have been reports that Nani could well be on his way out the door at Old Trafford and Hills make Zenit St Petersburg their favourite at 6/5 to sign on the dotted line. Inter Milan are 9/2 to take the winger on with Juventus, AC Milan and Real Madrid all in the running for the tricksters signature.

One player who will be staying is Danny Welbeck and he is 9/1 to be United’s top scorer this season. Hernandez is 8/1, Rooney 6/4 and new signing Robin Van Persie is the 11/8 favourite. After a terrific breakthrough season for club and country a good goal return would be expected by Sir Alex Ferguson but William Hill believe that he will get five or less goals at 2/1. It is 9/4 he will get between six and ten and 14/1 for over 20 goals.

Nani Next Club: 6/5 Zenit St Petersburg, 9/2 Inter Milan, 6/1 Anzhi, 7/1 PSG, 8/1 Juventus, 9/1 AC Milan, 12/1 Real Madrid, 14/1 Valencia, 20/1 Barcelona (Others on Request)

Could Butland Cause Joe World Cup Hart-ache?

England’s young cubs are 7/5 slight favourites to defeat Italy (2/1) on Wednesday night and the draw 11/5. Andy Carroll and Jermain Defoe are the only recognised strikers in the England squad yet neither are considered first choice at their club sides and are 13/8 (Defoe) and 5/6 (Carroll) to have left their clubs by the time the transfer window shuts. The Spurs striker is 1/7 to start Spurs opening game of the season although Andy Carroll is 4/1 to do so.

Jack Butland looks primed to make his debut in goal for England and William Hill offer 3/1 that he starts between the sticks for England’s first World Cup game in Brazil although Joe Hart is the 4/9 favourite.

“Butland looks likely to become the youngest ever goalkeeper capped by England and should he progress as is expected, he could well be pressing Joe Hart for the number one shirt,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly.

First scorer (England): 13/2 Andy Carroll; 7/1 Jermain Defoe; 8/1 Ashley Young; 9/1 Theo Walcott; 11/1 BAR

Hodgson’s Cubs Backed To Grow Into Lions

Roy Hodgson has announced a youthful side for England’s friendly against Italy and William Hill are betting on how many of the fringe players will feature in the World Cup in 2014. William Hill make Michael Carrick 15/8 to be included in the World Cup squad in 2014.

Chelsea’s Ryan Bertrand (6/4 to be included), Everton’s Jack Rodwell (1/1), Manchester United’s Tom Cleverley (8/13) and Tottenham’s Steven Caulker (13/8) and Jake Livermore (5/1) have all been called up. Jack Butland (2/5) and John Ruddy (5/6) are deputies to Joe Hart and Daniel Sturridge (4/6) provides a different option in attack.

“After a final fling at the Euros, it may be time for some of the old guard to move on and Hodgson has certainly signalled his intent by calling up so many youngsters,” said William Hill spokesman Mark Young.

Brazil are favourites for their home World Cup at 11/4. Argentina and Spain are 11/2 and England are 20/1 to be world champions.

Hat Trick Hero O – C 6/4 To Make Euro Squad

OXLADE-CHAMBERLAIN 6/4 TO MAKE ENGLAND’S EURO SQUAD

FOLLOWING his impressive hat trick against Switzerland in the Euro U21 Championship, Arsenal starlet Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain is a 6/4 chance with William Hill to make it into England’s senior squad for the Euro 2012 finals. ‘Oxlade-Chamberlain will inevitably be compared with Theo Walcott, and there is an argument that his elevation into Sven’s World Cup squad was actually harmful to his career at that stage’ said Hills spokesman Graham Sharpe.
Hills are also betting on how many Premier League starts he will make and goals he will score.

THE WORLD’S BIGGEST GAMBLE ON THE WORLD’S BIGGEST TOURNAMENT

BOOKMAKERS William Hill are convinced the World Cup will produce the first £1billion+ betting turnover after taking two SIX FIGURE bets even before a ball had been kicked in the World Cup.
‘We have taken a £200,000 bet from a telephone client on six countries either to qualify or miss out from the Group stage which could return £363,180 to the client’ said Hill’s spokesman Graham Sharpe, ‘And another customer has staked £110,000 on France for the World Cup at odds of 20/1 It is an each-way bet which could make a profit of £1.65m – which would make it the biggest winning football bet of all time.’
And England have not been ignored by the high rollers, with two bets of £6500 placed on them at odds of 8/1. But nor have England’s first opponents USA, on whom one punter has staked £5000 at 80/1 to win the tournament.
ENGLAND are 4/9 favourites to get off to a winning start against USA with William Hill who make them 4/9 favourites to win the game for which the USA are 13/2 outsiders with the draw at 16/5.

‘We have had to create a whole range of Rooney special bets to cope with the demand from punters’ said Hill’s spokesman Graham Sharpe.
William Hill ROONEY SPECIALS…..6/4 TO BE SUBSTITUTED V USA; 2/1 To be yellow carded; 7/2 to score in both halves;4/1 to score with a header; 5/1 to hit the woodwork; 6/1 to score from outside the penalty box; 7/1 to win a penalty.
