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”.  Erik ten Hag heads up the market at time of writing at 8/15, with Pochettino second favourite at 5/2.

  • Erik ten Hag 8/15
  • Mauricio Pochettino 5/2
  • Thomas Tuchel 10/1
  • Luis Enrique 12/1
  • Antonio Conte 20/1
  • Julen Lopetegui 20/1
  • Roberto Mancini 25/1
  • Ralph Rangnick 33/1
  • Diego Simeone 33/1
  • Zinedine Zidane 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.

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.

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

  • Sevilla 10/3
  • West Ham 4/1
  • Newcastle 5/1
  • AC Milan 6/1
  • Inter 15/2
  • Dortmund 9/1

Harry Kane

Harry Kane betting markets

Harry Kane wasn’t firing as he usually does at the start of the season after the breakdown of the move to Manchester City. Did he down-tool? Was he being played in the wrong position?Or was he just going through a poor run of form?

The jury is still out there on that one, but his performances have picked up of late and is once more finding the back of the net frequently.

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 1/7
  • Man City 9/2
  • Man United 15/2
  • PSG 9/1
  • Newcastle 11/1
  • Real Madrid 11/1
  • Liverpool 12/1
  • Barcelona 14/1
  • Juventus 14/1

*Odds captured 16:30 on 30/03/2022

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.

Will the 2022/23 season be the one that sees him furthering his career at a different club?

Paddy Power have a market opened up for anyone who fancies Haaland to move club, ready for the start of next season:

  • Man City 4/11
  • Real Madrid 2/1
  • Barcelona 10/1
  • Arsenal 14/1
  • Bayern Munich 16/1
  • PSG 20/1
  • Newcastle 33/1
  • Man United 33/1
  • Liverpool 40/1
  • Atletico Madrid 50/1
  • Juventus 50/1

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 made very few 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 not being cancelled out  by the bookmakers.

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

  • Cardiff 5/2
  • Tottenham 5/2
  • AC Milan 4/1
  • Newcastle 10/1
  • Rangers 12/1
  • Celtic 20/1
  • Juventus 20/1
  • Inter 20/1
  • Man United 20/1
  • Barcelona 25/1
