Odds Tumble On Bale Prem Return…Wenger Heading Home To France?

Gareth Bale is believed to fancy a move away from Real Madrid after slipping down the pecking order in the Spanish capital and William Hill make him 4/1 to move to Manchester United during the summer transfer window and 6/1 to return to Spurs.


“Should Bale leave Real, it is highly likely that he will return to the Premier League with both Manchester clubs and Spurs heading the betting,” said William Hill spokesman Joe Crilly. “In recent weeks, Bale’s odds of remaining where he is have drifted from 1/5 to 1/2.”


Across North London, it is rumoured that PSG are eyeing up Arsene Wenger and it is 6/4 that the Frenchman’s first job after he leaves Arsenal is in Ligue 1. It is 4/1 that he manages another Premier League side next and 7/1 he manages an international side as his next role.
