Usually, or at least when I have placed a bet on some sporting event, I want nothing more than whichever bookie has taken the bet to be left out of pocket. But with my Arsenal fan head on, I hope that the online bookmakers Betfair have got this one bang on.
According to a Metro report, they have today stopped taking any more bets concerning the widespread Arsenal transfer rumour linking us to the Chelsea and Czech Republic keeper Petr Cech. The betting company took the move after the money pouring on for the 33-year old to become a Gunner this summer took the odds down to an incredible 1/10 on.
The report also reveals that our Premier League rivals Manchester United were the favourites to sign the four time Premier League winner not long ago, but the signs are certainly pointing to Cech staying in London and joining Arsene Wenger at the Emirates stadium.
This would be a great start to the summer for Arsenal fans and it would also be an early blow to Jose Mourinho, who has been open about not wanting the player to join Arsenal as it would give us a much better chance of beating his Chelsea team to the BPL trophy.
But would this be the first of many Arsenal signings or the only one Wenger thinks we need?
