8/11 To Stay At United

Cristiano Ronaldo, Man Utd v Chelsea betting tips, Premier League, football

Coral’s Cristiano Ronaldo transfer odds suggest he will still be at Manchester United at the end of the summer transfer window.

The Portuguese star is odds-on at 8/11 to remain at Old Trafford this summer and is evens to move to another club.

The 37-year-old made a shock return to Old Trafford last summer but an impressive campaign on an individual level could not stop the Red Devils finishing sixth in the Premier League.

This season’s lack of Champions League football has not sat well with Ronaldo, who it recently emerged has asked to be allowed to leave if an acceptable offer arrived.

A family issue meant he has missed United’s pre-season tour of Thailand and Australia, but new boss Erik ten Hag has again underlined that Ronaldo is in his vision for the season ahead.

“It is clear – he is not for sale,” said Ten Hag this week. “I planned with (having) him and I am looking forward to working with him. But for the rest I cannot say anymore because the situation is still the same as last week.”

It will be interesting to see how Ronaldo fits into Ten Hag’s pressing style, so too the squad’s ability to adapt to that approach after interim boss Ralf Rangnick struggled to implement it last season.

Coral have United priced at 6/4 for a top-four finish and they are 25/1 in the Premier League winner odds, with Ronaldo 12/1 to be the top scorer in the Premier League.

In Ronaldo’s next club betting, Atletico Madrid are now the 7/2 favourites, after they were heavily linked with the forward. His boyhood club Sporting Lisbon are second best at 5/1.

“Our betting now suggests it is more likely that Cristiano Ronaldo will stay at Manchester United next season than him departing in the summer transfer window,” said Coral’s John Hill.

“Atletico Madrid are the favourites in his next club betting, with his boyhood club Sporting Lisbon next best.”
