Hazard, Costa, Rooney & Sanchez – will these huge names really leave?
There’s been so much talk over the last few weeks about some of the hugest names in world football moving clubs this summer. And while that leaves one set of fans sat in anticipation, it leaves another group of supporters biting their nails.
But our traders have been busy this afternoon pricing up the likelihood of a whole host of talents going or not.
Here’s what we make of all the talk…
Ross Barkley – 4/6 to stay with Everton
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang – 2/1 to stay with Borussia Dortmund
Eden Hazard – 1/4 to stay with Chelsea
Alexis Sanchez – 6/4 to stay with Arsenal
Wayne Rooney – 5/1 to stay with Manchester United
Antoine Griezmann – 5/2 to stay with Atletico Madrid
Diego Costa – Evens to stay with Chelsea
So there you have it. As far as our traders are concerned, Wayne Rooney has already played his last game for Manchester United.
But he could be replaced at Old Trafford by one of the most exciting properties in the game right now in the shape of Antoine Griezmann.
Meanwhile, it looks likely Everton will be able to keep hold of Ross Barkley for at least another year, with the England man now being odds-on to stay at Goodison Park after the summer.
Chelsea may well have to plan for life without Diego Costa, but 1/4 suggests Eden Hazard is going nowhere soon.
And the Gunners’ season could be about to go from bad to worse, with Manchester City reportedly readying a move for Alexis Sanchez. We’re yet to hear of who his potential replacement would be, either. Worrying times ahead in North London, then…
Borussia Dortmund could be without Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang by the time the 2017-18 season starts, with the Gabonese striker as long as 2/1 to stay with the Bundesliga giants.
