BOOKIES reckon Spurs fans will still be able to rave about man of the moment Gareth Bale next season.
With the Welsh wizard arguably becoming the hottest property in world football overnight Paddy Power make Bale 4-9 to still be a Spurs player after next summer’s transfer window while bet365 go 2-1 he moves to a bigger club.
Spanish giants Barcelona and Real Madrid at 8-1 are near the top of the betting for Bale’s club next season but it's EPL moneybags Man City who Paddy Power rate most likely to secure his services at 11-2 with Chelsea and Man Utd 11-1. Bet365 go higher on the Spanish with Barca 10-1 and Real 14-1.
It looks unlikely Bale will “do a Sol Campbell” though with Spurs’ local rivals Arsenal 40-1 outsiders.
Paddy Power are also betting on the size of a likely transfer fee for Bale, making both £30-35million and £35-40m the joint favourite price tags at 9-2.
Bale is 8-1 to be the PFA Player of the Year from 14-1 and has now had more bets placed on him than any other player.
Meanwhile, William Hill go 5-1 that all four English sides reach at least the quarter-finals stage despite Arsenal's defeat at Shakhtar Donetsk last night.
Chelsea are 4-1 to win the Champions’ League this year with Man United 8-1, Arsenal 10-1 and Spurs 25-1.
The Stamford Bridge side are favourites to progress furthest of the British sides at 6-4 with Man United 15-8, Arsenal 10-3, Spurs 6-1 and Rangers 33-1. One British side in the Final pays 4-5, none 6-4 and two 5-1.
