Will Benitez bounce to make way for Mourinho?
Rafa Benitez is the 4/11 favourite to be the next manager to leave his job after his price tumbled midweek from 6/1 with William Hill.
Rafa is 8/1 to be in charge on the first day of next season. More realistic is that Jose Mourinho returns to Stamford Bridge with Britain's biggest bookmaker making the Portuguese manager 5/6 to be in charge on day one of the 2013-14 season.
Seeing as West Brom have signalled the death knell for both AVB and RDM, it is 2/1 that the Baggies are Benitez's last opponents as Chelsea manager.
It has been reported that Ryan Giggs has signed another one year contract extension and he is Even money to outlast Sir Alex Ferguson at Manchester United (8/11 he does not).
Having scored in every Premier League season ever played, Giggs is 4/6 to score in next season's competition and 3/1 to play in the 2014/15 season.
Gareth Bale is the current man of the moment in the Premier League and he is 16/1 to score in the next four Premier League matches (although he is 4/9 to fail to hit the back of the net against Arsenal on Sunday).
After his match winning performance against West Ham last Monday, there was plenty of chat about him leaving Spurs. He is, however, 2/7 to still be at the club on the first day of next season. Should he have left, he is 9/2 to have joined Real Madrid.
