The Chelsea goalkeeper Petr Cech has made it clear that he will be leaving Stamford Bridge this summer, and, according to a report in todays Mirror, he has decided that he DEFINITELY going to either Arsenal or Paris St Germain.
They say that Cech would prefer to stay in London where he has lived for the last ten years (not to mention playing in the best League in the world) but his agents are trying to push him towards the French Champions PSG,because they will pay him more and will match his Chelsea wage of £120,000 a week.
That all sounds reasonable, so I thought I would just check out the bookies sites to see where THEY think he will be going. I always trust the bookies because they always win!). Lo and behold, Arsenal are nowhere near favourites! If you look at Paddy Power, who are in fact Arsenal’s favoured betting partner, you will find that Arsenal are THIRD favourites at 7/2, behind PSG (17/10) and Roma (3/1).
Actually what is even more interesting is that Liverpool are only just behind Arsenal at 4/1 and Man United are at 13/2. Now if this is Arsenal’s official bookie (and a giant betting site), you would expect they have set their prices on a little bit of knowledge, wouldn’t you?
Also looking at Jose Mourinho’s comments recently about Arsenal being a big challenger next year, can you REALLY see Cech coming to Arsenal next season?
