Manchester United’s major target Bruno Fernandes has been odds on favourite to join Man Utd most of this Summer’s transfer window. Until yesterday afternoon…
Liverpool’s odds dropped to 10/11 yesterday afternoon, putting them favourites to sign Fernandes. Just a few hours later it dropped to 1/3; yesterday evening the odds took another dive to 1/9 that Liverpool will sign Bruno Fernandes. These are the same odds that Aaron Wan-Bissaka will sign for Man Utd.
The odds swung massively to Liverpool’s favour as Bruno Fernandes departed from Lisbon 21:30BST yesterday, and posted a farewell message to Sporting Lisbon and their fans on Instagram. However, he appears to be flying to Dubai and not Liverpool; Family holiday, final round of negotiations or to complete a medical?
It’s worth noting, betting companies are reactionary and change odds dependant on the market. Therefore someone has bet big on the Portuguese Midfielder signing for Liverpool and the markets have reacted to a big money bet.
The main stream media have yet to respond to the bookies slashing the odds. Are they behind the pace, or is there really nothing in this? One thing is for sure; it’s got Man Utd fans concerned and if possible, even more frustrated with a seemingly incompetent board to prioritise the correct transfers and get deals over the line.
Personally, despite the latest odds; I still feel Man Utd will complete the signing in due course.
