The transfer rumours which are wildly linking Arsenal’s striker Robin Van Persie with a move away from the club aren’t going unnoticed by the biggest British bookies on the internet, and you can earn quite an impressive amount of money if you’ll be able to predict his next destination. Our American readers can try this link for US friendly sportsbooks.
The trophy drought at Arsenal has convinced Robin to refuse to hold any contract negotiations until the summer transfer window opens. Many think that this is just a way to motivate Wenger into bringing reinforcements at the club, and it’s believed that Eden Hazard is the biggest target for Arsenal’s manager.
Hazard is rated with 5/1 odds of joining Arsenal or Spurs, but the bookies expect that he’s most likely to join United who are hot favourites at odds of 9/4, with Man City at 6/1 and Chelsea at 9/1.
Van Persie’s possible departure has also attracted attention, as the bookies will allow you to bet on his next destination (be it 4 years from now), where City is leading with 11/10 odds with Barcelona and Real Madrid trailing with odds of 8/1. You may also bet on where Robin will be after the transfer period, and Arsenal aren’t in too much danger of losing their captain according to the bookies who make him 1/2 odds on to remain at Arsenal, while a move to Juventus who has been recently linked has seen the odds drop from 33/1 to just 16/1.
But it will all be academic if Arsenal hold on to Third Place as I am convinced Robin will extend as long as he plays in the Champions League.
