Football Transfer Betting Markets

There’s plenty of transfer betting markets out there that provide betting options on players, clubs and managers that directly relate to transfers and transfer windows.

These are typically known as “specials” with the bookmakers and can frequently be found within the football menus on the well established betting apps.

Be Prepared To Hunt Around

The markets are not really commonly shared, so there is a bit of hunting around required if a specific transfer request is being sought after.

There is also the opportunity of requesting a transfer bet through a bookmakers bet request service – this usually requires the user to make a request to the bookmaker via Twitter, who will then make a decision on whether or not to accept the request and to offer out a price.

Anyhow, here are some of the transfer betting markets that have caught our eye, based on current news and rumours.

Next Manchester United Manager

Ralph Rangnick football transfer betting markets

Manchester United appear to be in turmoil. Ralph Rangnick has come in to try and steady the ship, but looks to be failing miserably.

Rumours are rife that players have not warmed to him and their performances of late certainly shows signs of remonstration.

Will he turn things round, or will he be moved on quickly once the season is over? That is the big question!

Paddy Power and Betfair are offering out the market “Manchester United manager at the start of the 22/23 EPL season”.  Pochettino heads up the market at time of writing at 6/4, with Ralph Rangnick closely behind at 5/2.

  • Mauricio Pochettino 6/4
  • Ralph Rangnick 5/2
  • Brendan Rodgers 11/2
  • Erik ten Hag 13/2
  • Zinedine Zidane 16/1
  • Roberto Martinez 33/1
  • Didier Deschamps 33/1
  • Julian Nagelsmann 33/1
  • Diego Simeone 33/1
  • Thomas Tuchel 33/1

Next England Manager

Gareth Southgate

It’s the World Cup at the end of this year and Should Southgate fail to deliver silverware this time round, he could well feel like it’s time to hand the baton over for somebody else to have a crack.

William Hill, Paddy Power and betfair have this market priced up, ready to be bet on. There’s 40 possible selections in the market, ranging from 5/1 to 100/1. Jamie Carragher is one of the more comical options down in the 100/1 selections.

  • Dean Smith 5/1
  • Sean Dyche 8/1
  • Eddie Howe 10/1
  • Frank Lampard 12/1
  • Steven Gerrard 12/1
  • Graham Potter 12/1
  • Brendan Rodgers 16/1
  • Steve Holland 16/1
  • Pep Guardiola 16/1
  • Arsene Venger 20/1
  • Jose Mourinho 33/1
  • Jurgen Klopp 50/1

Jesse Lingard

Jesse Lingard

Jesse Lingard’s time on the pitch has been extremely limited since his return back off loan to Manchester United. After having such a successful time out at West Ham, that must be quite a hard pill to swallow.

BetVictor have opened up the market offer punters the chance to bet on where Lingard will be playing his football come the end of the January transfer window.

Manchester remain favourite as retaining the 29 year old, although another loan spell out until the end of the season makes sense and may well look appealing to both parties.

  • Manchester United 3/10
  • West Ham 6/4
  • Newcastle 6/1
  • Southampton 10/1
  • Any Spanish club 16/1
  • All German clubs 16/1
  • Any Italian club 16/1
  • Leeds 25/1
  • Everton 25/1
  • Leicester 25/1

Harry Kane

Harry Kane betting markets

Harry Kane hasn’t been firing as he usually does since the breakdown of the move to Manchester City. Has he down-tooled? Is he being played in the wrong position?

Is he going through a port run of form? The jury is still out there on that one, but the bookies seem certain at this point that his immediate future remains at Tottenham.

However, that hasn’t stopped Skybet or Unibet offering registered users the chance to bet on which club he will be representing after the transfer window has shut. With Kane carrying a hefty price tag, only 5 elite clubs have been considered in the market.

  • To remain at Spurs 1/20
  • Man City 8/1
  • Real Madrid 16/1
  • Barcelona 16/1
  • PSG 20/1

Personally, this will be a market I will be avoiding. There’s no real media splash to suggest a move is imminent and there’s no real value at 1/20 on Kane staying at Spurs.

Erling Haaland

Erling Haaland

Haaland is a well sought after player and is regarded as one of the best strikers on the planet at just 21 years of age. He is oozing with future potential and as such brings about a fair bit of click bait across sports news and social media.

He is currently at Borussia Dortmund, but ends up getting linked to almost every possible club that has the potential to afford him. Despite the gossip from previous transfer windows of “likely moves”, they all have fallen way short of reality.

Therefore, I’m confident he will be remaining a Dortmund player, until the end of the season at the very least. Moving halfway through the season for him, doesn’t make sense to me.

BetVictor have a market opened up for anyone who fancies Haaland to move club within this transfer window:

  • Any Italian club 10/1
  • Real Madrid 10/1
  • Man City 12/1
  • Bayern Munich 16/1
  • Barcelona 20/1
  • Man United 20/1
  • PSG 20/1
  • Liverpool 20/1

Gareth Bale

Gareth Bale

32 year old Gareth Bale will be itching for Wales to qualify for the World Cup so he can be part of that patriotic experience. He is currently at Real Madrid with a contract that ends in the summer.

He has only made three appearances this season and it is rumoured that he may well look to retire in the summer, should Wales fail to qualify through the World Cup playoffs.

To get himself in the best shape and to stay sharp, he will surely be looking for more game time and could well be asking for a loan move back to England to accomplish that.

A move back to a  Championship welsh club has been hinted at on Sky Sports. However, a move to a different European country (if any move at all) is favoured by the bookmakers.

BetVictor are offering prices on other clubs gaining Bale’s services within the January transfer window as one of their transfer betting markets:

  • Any French club 12/1
  • Any German club 12/1
  • Southampton 12/1
  • Newcastle 12/1
  • Tottenham 16/1
  • Manchester United 20/1
  • Cardiff 25/1
  • Chelsea 25/1
  • Liverpool 25/1

Nathan Ake

Ake must be feeling a bit like a spare part in the Manchester City squad. Eight appearances so far isn’t too bad, but he must surely be feeling like he has much more to offer.

Big spenders Newcastle along with West Ham have reportedly been sniffing around the defender, while AC Milan also look interested in doing some business after losing Kjaer to a season-long injury.

The Athletic have reported that Ake, who has a £40m valuation has not reported a desire to move and so there is no intention to move him on in January, although there is plenty of time still for him to have a “quiet word with the gaffer”.

Here’s how BetVictor have the “Ake’s club after transfer window” market priced up.

  • Newcastle 3/1
  • Any Italian club 5/1
  • West Ham 8/1
  • Any Spanish club 12/1
  • All German clubs 12/1
  • Any French club 12/1
  • All Championship clubs 14/1
  • Leeds 20/1
  • Everton 20/1
  • Aston Villa 20/1
  • Southampton 20/1
