City New Favourites For Raheem Sterling

Manchester City are the new favourites to be Raheem Sterling’s club on the 2nd September according to William Hill, who have cut his odds from 2/1 to 6/4 in the last hour. Liverpool have been pushed out from 5/4 to 13/8 following the news that he is unlikely to sign a new contract.

“Sterling appears to have completely disregarded Steven Gerrard’s advice to stay at Liverpool to develop and it is looking increasingly likely he will join Manchester City this summer,” said William Hill spokesman Joe Crilly.

Another player who looks like he will be on the way in the summer is David de Gea who is just 1/6 to join Real Madrid. He is 7/2 to stay at Manchester United, who are just 9/4 to sign Asmir Begovic over the summer.

“David de Gea looks all but certain to leave over the summer and in Victor Valdes they have a readymade replacement, however there is no doubting that they will dip into the transfer market for another stopper and Asmir Begovic seems to be top of the list,” said William Hill spokesman Joe Crilly.
