This is all very strange as there are reports of monster amounts of money being placed with bookies saying that the Arsenal midfielder Mesut Ozil is set to join Alexis Sanchez at Manchester United.
Last night the Manchester Evening News reported that Paddy Power’s odds has been slashed from 33/1 on Friday down to 14/1 yesterday, as the German has still refused to sign a contract extension with the Gunners, meaning he could leave for free in the summer.
So I have done a bit of research around the other bookies, and the highest price you can still get is 14/1 from the exchange site Betfair, but the bookies themselves are even lower, with Ladbrokes offering only 8/1 and Unibet and 888sport are both priced at 9/1.
Betvictor must have taken the most money as they are only giving a miserly 6/1. So who has been putting on all this money? There have been hardly any rumours at all about Ozil at all this month and he has started the last two Arsenal matches since returning from injury.
This all sounds very fishy to me. What do you think?
