Transfer Gossip: Barkley 8/1 to join Chelsea, Guardiola 7/1 to be City Boss and Will United Dare to Zlatan at 70/1?

The Sunday papers are always good for a bit of transfer gossip. We take a look at BBC Sport’s round-up of rumours and see where you can claim some value in the betting markets.

Ross Barkley 9/1 (BetVictor) to Join Chelsea

The Everton midfielder has apparently been valued at a staggering £50m and according to the Daily Star it’s a two horse race between Man City and Chelsea for his signature. He’s 2/5 (SkyBet) to stay with the Toffees beyond this Summer’s transfer window but if he is to leave City are favourites at 2/1 to secure his services. Chelsea are 9/1 at BetVictor whilst Man Utd are 12/1 (BetVictor).

Pep Guardiola 7/1 to boss City

Manuel Pelligrini’s coat appears to be on a shoogly peg if the Sunday Mirror team are to be believed. They report that the City manager will be on his way oif they fail to finish in the top top two. The bookies seem to agree with SkyBet going 4/9 that he won’t be in charge at the Etihad for the start of next season.

Favourite to replace him is Real Madrid gaffer, Carlo Ancelotti (6/5 SkyBet). Next in line is a promotion for Patrick Viera who is a 5/1 (Paddy Power) shot to take over the hotseat. The really exciting option for City fans is Pep Guardiola who is 7/1 at SkyBet – but as short as 4s at Paddy Power. Rafa Benitez is also a 7/1 shot with SkyBet. Others in the frame include Conte (16/1), Koeman (2/1) and Klopp (20/1)

Falcao 1/5 to leave Old Trafford

Colombia striker Radamel Falcao, 29, could join Juventus when his season-long loan at Manchester United ends, according to his agent report Gazetta in Italy. Odds of 1/5 (Betfair) makes it look a certainty that Falcao won’t be at Old Trafford for the 2015/16 season.

Zlatan 70/1 to join United in the Summer

It may be some wishful thinking from the great Dane but Peter Schmeichel reckons Zlatan Ibrahimovic is ‘built’ for Old Trafford according to French paper L’equipe. The only bookie offering a bet on that happening this Summer are Unibet who make it a 70/1 chance. Zlatan staying at PSG looks the most likely option at 1/5, whilst a stint in the MLS at LA Galaxy is a 5/1 shot. Chelsea are the shortest priced English club at 14/1 whilst it’s 13/2 that his next move is to England.
