Rooney To Join Chelsea? South London Gamble Slashes Odds
William Hill have had to slash the price of Wayne Rooney joining Chelsea even further as the gamble on him joining Mourinho at the Bridge has continued. Offered at 7/2 at the start of the day, he is just 5/4 to join the Blues before the end of the transfer window.
"We were seeing big bets at 7/2 so we cut the odds to 13/8 and the big boys were still getting involved," said William Hill spokesman Joe Crilly. "When you see a gamble like that, you have to think there is more than just hearsay involved."
Wayne Rooney club on 3rd September: 4/7 Manchester United; 5/4 Chelsea; 8/1 PSG; 9/1 Arsenal; 10/1 Real Madrid; 14/1 BAR
