Real Madrid’s continuing crisis means Europe’s most eligible managers are on alert – with Antonio Conte (5/2) the favourite.
But, today, as Real Madrid lost to Levante – their fourth defeat in five matches – our traders were forced to drastically cut the odds on Arsene Wenger heading to the Bernabeu, from 14/1 to 6/1, more than doubling the likelihood of the move.
It puts him as third favourite in the betting for Julen Lopetegui’s successor, behind Conte and Mauricio Pochettino (3/1).
Spokesman Paddy Power said: “He won’t need his big coat in Spain – which is probably a good thing, as the zipper’s knackered.
“Arsene, though, evidently isn’t and, after some cryptic comments midweek, we’ve seen a Real run of bets on him.”
NEXT REAL MADRID MANAGER
16/1 Max Allegri
16/1 Santiago Solari
20/1 Jose Mourinho
