RVP backed to start season at United
Sir Alex Ferguson has claimed that Manchester United are still in the hunt for Robin van Persie and William Hill offer 6/4 that the Dutchman starts Manchester United's first game of the season.
William Hill think that RVP and Wayne Rooney will be the focal point of Manchester United's (5/2 for the Premier League title) forward line and they are both 5/6 to outscore their potential future striking partner.
"Van Persie's exit from Arsenal looks to be inching ever closer and we think he could be lining up for United on the first day of the season," said Hill's spokesman Joe Crilly.
Should van Persie come in, United will probably have to offload one of their strikers and that would probably be Berbatov.
Hills make Zenit St Petersburg the most likely destination for the Bulgarian at 6/4, with AC Milan 5/1 and Galatasaray 6/1.
Tony Hibbert scored his first ever goal for Everton in his testimonial against AEK Athens and William Hill are offering odds of 3/1 that he manages to break his Premier League duck this season (2/9 that he does not).
"Tony Hibbert may have got the goalscoring bug after his strike against AEK Athens and may venture further forward this season in order to get his name on the scoresheet again," said Hill's spokesman Joe Crilly.
Brendan Rodgers has stated that every player has his price, hinting that Daniel Agger may well be on his way to Manchester City and the big Dane is 5/1 to sign for the Premier League Champions by the start of the 2012/13 season.
