Thiago Transfer Latest: United odds-on to sign Liverpool target after run of bets

The Spanish midfielder looks Man United bound after a series of bets caused our traders to cut his price

Comments

Not content with adding Donny van de Beek to his midfield options, Man United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer looks set to add Bayern Munich’s Thiago Alcantara to his squad based on the latest moves we’ve seen in the transfer odds – and also needle the Red Devils’ Merseyside rivals while he’s at it.

The Spanish playmaker’s odds have collapsed to 4/9 that he’ll move to Manchester before the transfer window closes having long been linked with a switch to Anfield.

The now 29-year-old was rejected by then-United manager David Moyes in 2013 when he left Barcelona looking for more first-team opportunities but could be set to finally pull on United’s famous red seven years later if the surge of betting interest from our punters is any indication.

DON’T MISS:

Should Ed Woodward and Ole pull off the move it’ll be sure to irk the current Premier League champions, who’d been rumoured to have a deal in the bag earlier in the transfer window.

They remain second-favourites to pull off the signing should he leave the European Champions in the coming weeks (17/10) while a return to Catalonia can’t be ruled out with the currently turmoil-stricken Barca rated as a 10/3 shot to secure his highly-sought services as he looks surplus to requirements at Munich.

Should United get the deal over the line it is likely Jesse Lingard will be forced towards the Untied exit door – if the club can find someone to sign him.

Currently favoured as the England international’s next destination is West Ham, at 13/8, with Everton (9/2) and Aston Villa (11/2) longer shots to take on the 27-year-old.

9/2
Everton Jesse Lingard to sign for in the next transfer window

James Rodriguez and Jesse Lingard in the same midfield, anyone?

2020’s been so crazy we wouldn’t rule it out.
