Manchester United 5/4 to sign player before Community Shield
Despite the need for a world class midfielder to replace Paul Scholes, William Hill are 4/7 that Sir Alex Ferguson does NOT sign another player prior to the Charity Shield and 5/4 that he does. Hills are 6/4 that the next player Sir Alex signs is Wesley Sneijder, 7/4 that it is Luka Modric, 11/2 Sami Nasri and 7/2 Jack Rodwell. ManUtd are the 7/4 favourites to win the Premiership and to do so they will need their strikers firing on all cylinders - Hills make Hernandez their 6/4 favourite to be the club's top Premiership scorer with Rooney 13/8 and Berbatov 7/1.
"Even with an obvious gap in their midfield, Manchester United are the favourites to win back to back Premiership titles and should they land Sneijder they could get even shorter," said Hill's spokesman Rupert Adams.
