Our football traders have today been forced to cut the odds on N’Golo Kante leaving Chelsea for Manchester United.
The move was priced at a fairly speculative 12/1 until this morning, when a flurry of bets prompted the Power Tower traders to shorten the transfer to as short as 6/4 – and it keeps dropping.
Our punters don’t expect Ed Woodward to be deterred from diving into the transfer market by the failure of the Red Devils’ move for Jadon Sancho, and are backing it up with this sudden surge in interest to see the French international move north.
And our own all-action midfielder Paddy Power is backing the move, saying: “How do you balance a midfield with attacking players like Pogba and Fernandes?

“Well, Ole’s nailed it – sign the man who performs like he’s two players, N’Golo Kante. The Frenchman has been less of a regular under Frank Lampard at Chelsea, so could be available.”
