Betting odds on Schweinsteiger joining Man United have been slashed

SkyBet have slashed the odds on Bastian Schweinsteiger joining Manchester United, after a string of bets was placed on the 29-year old moving to Old Trafford this summer. Schweinsteiger’s odds of 5/2 reflect that United are clear favourites for his signature, with Monaco next in-line at a huge 16/1.

Its worth noting that betting odds don’t mean that Schweinsteiger is definitely going to sign for Manchester United, but it does indicate that we are the frontrunners if he does decide to leave Bavaria.

SkyBet’s head of football trading said:

“We’ve seen a flurry of bets on United signing Schweinsteiger this summer on the back of widespread speculation that he is Van Gaal’s primary target.

“It remains to be seen whether it is merely punters following the news or whether it is genuinely informed money, but we’ve been forced to cut his price significantly, having offered 5/2 on Friday morning.

“There seems to be little competition for his services at the moment, with Monaco next in the betting at 16/1 and attracting very little interest.”

At 29, he doesn’t have too many years ahead of him, but our midfield seriously needs work. It’d be a deal similar to the Robin van Persie move, where he’d be able to come in and have an instant impact straight away.
