Sky Bet football transfers enable punters to place their bets where they think 20 different players will have switched to by the time the transfer window closes on 3 September 2016.
Some of the players have featured in the Sky Bet Player transfers section for seasons now, and I strongly believe this could be the year that comes to an end!
Christian Benteke – 6/1 to Join Manchester United
With Manchester United having struggled for the better part of the season and speculation that Louis Van Gal will be leaving the Old Trafford at the end of this season, Manchester United seem to have Jose Mourinho as his next replacement.
Consequently, Sky Bet Man Utd transfers strongly believe that The Special One should seek new players with experience at the front and those who will suit he’s style of play.
In fact, Jose has been known for having a thing for experienced players and often selling or willing to swap the older players for, the younger ones.
Sky Bet transfers traders have been forced to slash the price of Benteke’s switch to Old Trafford from 5/1 to a mere 2/1 in the wake of “huge waves of bets” being placed on the player to make the switch.
Mario Götze – 8/11 to Join Liverpool
A piece of the tabloid transfer tittle-tattle which has failed to reflect the Sky Bet Liverpool transfers is BBC’s claim that Mario Götze will be heading to Anfield, with the Reds still a hefty 8/11 to recruit the German international.
The main reason for this probably is that BBC was adamant that with the departure of Pep Guardiola from Bayern Munich, Götze would also want to out of his current club.
Moreover, they have made this unconfirmed rumor because Klopp’s success with Germany players may favor his use for Götze’s experience and ability to score goals. However, Sky Bet Liverpool transfers may not favor this with other potential players such as Antoine Griezmann having lower odds than Götze’s.
Antoine Griezmann – 5/1 to Join Manchester City
Griezmann to City is a link that has just developed recently and though one conclusion to draw is that is there is something that has been speculated on the transfer rumor and has low odds like it is in the sky bet player transfers list, then there is a chance of the event happening.
The latest odds, 5/1 favor that Griezmann will be in Pep Guardiola’s squad by the time the transfer window closes.
Whether he will be an instant hit like Kevin Debruyne or struggle to find the form he has been displaying at Atletico Madrid is an intriguing debate.
However, Griezmann has never failed to show his worth, and with his signature put on paper at the Etihad Stadium, he will bring excitement to English football.
In fact, he’s one of the key players in the Euro 2016 when France will be hosting the event as from July.
Riyad Mahrez to Join Barcelona @ 9/2
Speculations are that the Leicester hero had a deal discussed with FC Barcelona as a formality towards the end of the season, but the Catalans coach, Luis Enrique, has refused to make any comments regarding the possibility of the Algerian International of joining FC Barcelona.
However, the latest report shows that there is a disconnect between FC Barcelona and his current employers Leicester, who may want more than £35 million.
However, the odds of 9/2, the best at any other bookie besides Sky Bet transfers, express confidence that there will be an agreement between the two teams before the closing deadline of 3rd September 2016.
This will see the Algerian attacking midfielder who assisted 15 times and scored equally in 20 premier league appearances move to Nou Camp and join the likes of Suarez and Neymar in the midfield.
Other Transfer Rumours and Speculations
Sky Bet Championship transfers don’t feature most of the players, but there are plenty of done deals already with players moving out of the championship to other leagues and other players moving into the fourth highest earning league in the world.
Some of the notable transfer rumors that haven’t been featured in the sky bet championship transfers include that of Blackburn Rovers approach for Manchester United’s Warren Joyce.
The U-21 player who has had a good season with the junior team has had his future of joining his former teammates Rashford with the rumors of Louis van Gaal being sacked as the head coach.
According to news reaching the Sky Sports desk from the Sky Bet Man Utd Transfers, Blackburn is keen on offering the player regular play time if he accepts to join the club. Other transfer news includes that of Leeds United making a move for Dundee’s winger, Greg Stewart.
It is believed that the once Premier League champions sent their scouts to watch the 26-year-old as he played a few times as the Scotland season came to an end.
Per a report published in the Dundee Evening Telegraph, the scouts were aptly impressed, and they are keen in making Greg Stewart their number one summer priority.
Moreover, Liverpool has yet been linked to Porto’s 18-year-old starlet Reuben Neves. The player has attracted attention from some of the top European clubs, which prompted Liverpool to send their scout to watch the player in action.
This player has made his way to the Guinness Book for the youngest player ever in any football team to Captain a team in the Champions League and has had more than 50 appearances for the team at that tender age.
