Odds-on for world record transfer deal

Bookmakers are odds-on that the world transfer record will be broken this summer.

The current record stands at £89million, which Manchester United paid Juventus for Paul Pogba last summer.

Now it is a matter of when rather than if somebody will pay £100million for a player.

In recent days, Eden Hazard and Neymar have both been linked with moves that would break the record.

Hazard and Neymar have been linked with Real Madrid and Man United respectively, but many believe that the record could be broken by one of the big spending Chinese Super League clubs – who have already shown a willingness to smash the £100million barrier in recent months.

Our Football Insider Graeme Bailey believes that the record will be gone in the next 12-months.

“It is hard to see it not going. Yes one of the big European clubs, like a Real Madrid, Barcelona or Manchester United could very well break it but I think it might be one of the Chinese clubs that do it first,” he told TheGamblingTimes.com.

“I am sure that we are in for a record breaking summer.”

Ladbrokes are now going 4/6 for record to be broken – coming in from 3/1.

Ladbrokes News’ Alex Apati said: “We’re preparing for a huge summer in the transfer market, and that means equally huge fees. If the latest odds are anything to go by, Paul Pogba’s price tag could just pale into insignificance by the time the window slams shut in September.”
