Coutinho Odds Of Moving To Barca Drift As Sanchez Looks Likely To Stay At Arsenal

Philippe Coutinho remains odds on to move to Barcelona this season although once again the odds of him staying at Liverpool have been cut. He is 8/11 (from 4/7) to move to Barcelona and Even money (from 11/10) to stay at Anfield.


“The way in which Coutinho has conducted himself during the recent speculation suggests that he will not try to force a move through and for that reason, plus the fact that no second bid has been lodged, Liverpool’s odds of keeping their man have come in,” said William Hill spokesman Joe Crilly.


Another man who was rumoured to be leaving his club this summer was Alexis Sanchez and despite a flurry of betting activity at the start of the transfer window, the Chilean is just 1/3 to remain at Arsenal. He is 2/1 to join PSG and 9/4 to move to Manchester City.
