Paddy Power has cut the odds on Dimitri Payet signing for Manchester United, amid reports the Frenchman no longer wants to play for West Ham.
To be fair, who can blame him? The Hammers star man has cut a forlorn figure in recent weeks, with West Ham wallowing in 13th place in the Premier League thanks to a disappointing first half of the season.
Today manager Slaven Bilic revealed Payet no longer wants to play for the club, and Paddy Power is reporting a flurry of bets on the midfielder to sign for United.
Our traders have reacted by cutting the odds from 12/1 to 15/2 on Payet arriving at Old Trafford – where Mourinho and his side seem to have got their mojo back in recent weeks.
With Payet seemingly unhappy at the new London Stadium – like every other West Ham follower – We are offering 5/1 for the 29 year-old to NOT play for the Hammers again.
7/1 Any Chinese Club
15/2 Man United
20/1 Any MLS Club
33/1 Inter Milan
33/1 AC Milan
Paddy Power said:
“West Ham’s star man last season hasn’t settled at the Hammers new home, and with a Top 6 finish looking unlikely at this stage its no surprise he’s unhappy.”
“The odds suggest a move back home is most likely, but it’s interesting we’ve seen money for United this morning as Mourinho’s project at Old Trafford continues to take shape.”
