Chelsea favourites to sign Rooney
The odds on Chelsea signing Manchester United’s want-away striker Wayne Rooney have been slashed to 8/13 following reports that the London club had an initial player plus cash bid rejected.
Moneybags, Paris St Germain, are considered Mourinho’s biggest rivals in the race for the scouser’s signature at 6/1 followed by Barcelona and Arsenal who are both at 12/1.
Elsewhere, it’s 16/1 for him to line out in the white of Madrid next year while the odds on him moving to Manchester City or Everton are 25/1 and 33/1 respectively.
A spokesperson for Paddy Power told Football Betting News: “A whole host of clubs are bound to be sniffing around Manchester following Rooney’s statement but at the moment Chelsea are very much in poll position.”
