Will Manchester United break world record fee on deadline day?
How exciting transfer deadline day is always tends to be a bit of an unknown quantity. There are always deals made, but whether they will be of the Robinho to Manchester City variety or the Championship Player X to League One side Y type is never quite guaranteed.
There will be rumours though, oh there’ll be plenty of those. And sightings. And late-night office shots on Sky Sports News, but will there be any money made by Ladbrokes customers?
Well for the January transfer window there may just be, as the bookmaker opens a raft of special markets to celebrate the closing of the season’s activity.
Markets on whether Chelsea, Man City, Manchester United, Liverpool and Arsenal will sign a player on deadline day will be available, as will prices on whether either the world or British transfer records will be broken.
With Chelsea just completing the details on Juan Cuadrado’s move, it’s unlikely that they will break the bank again, and as City have already signed Wilfried Bony they are probably done too.
So it could be left to United, and their zealous lust for heavy transfer fees, to help bring some intrigue to the occasion, with their reported interest in Cristiano Ronaldo and Gareth Bale the most likely to demand a record-breaking sum.
Which club will sign the most players, likely to be a relegation struggler like West Brom or Hull, will also be priced up, while a book will be open on who will do the last deal of the January window too.
So while you keep track of all the wheelings and dealings throughout the day, don’t miss the chance to make a few quid or too either!
