Odds on Ozil joining Manchester United Slashed after flurry of bets
December 4, 2018
Arsenal’s Mesut Özil has been tipped to become a Manchester United player in the 2019 January transfer window after Coral were forced to slash their odds on the midfielder to make the move after they received a flurry of bets over the last 24 hours.
Leading online bookmaker Coral, who offer new customers £30 in free bets, cut the odds on Özil moving to United in the January window to just 4/5 with Coral spokesman John Hill saying:
“It looks like Mesut Ozil is going to be on the move in January and we are seeing one-way traffic for Manchester United to capture the out of favour midfielder from Arsenal.”
Özil has missed the last three of Arsenal’s matches due to a back injury against Bournemouth, Vorskla and Tottenham. all of which resulted in victories for the Gunners. Arsenal visit Old Trafford on Wednesday evening with Özil likely to also miss that game.
Unai Emery’s side have been in excellent form of late, securing an impressive 4-2 victory over London rivals Tottenham in their last game. They’re up against Mourinho’s side who are currently 7th in the Premier League and without a win since their 2-1 victory over Bournemouth in March.
This isn’t the first time Özil has been linked to Manchester United with rumours emerging around this time last year. Özil and Mourinho worked together during their time at Real Madrid where they won the 2011/2012 La Liga title.
Coral betting odds were just 4/5 for Özil to join Mourinho in January but they seem to have withdrawn the market completely along with the majority of other betting sites. However, Skybet still have the market live and punters are able to get a massive price of 25/1 on the move going ahead.
Could this be an opportunity to get in at huge odds??
