City Favourites To Pip United To Pep

Despite rumours suggesting that Manchester United have been in contact with Pep Guardiola, it is their neighbours, City, who are in pole position, according to bookmakers. William Hill make City a 2/9 shot to be Pep’s next destination although following alleged talks in Paris, United are 5/1 second favourites.

Arsenal and Chelsea are 8/1 and 10/1.

“It looks like a straight race between the two Manchester sides to be Pep’s next destination and it looks as though Guardiola could choose favourites City over their red rivals despite reports to the contrary,” said William Hill spokesman Joe Crilly. “Two in three bets on this market have been for one side – City.”

William Hill odds:

Which club will Pep Guardiola be manager/head coach of on the first day of the Premier League 2016/17 season: 2/9 Manchester City; 5/1 Manchester United; 8/1 Arsenal; 10/1 Chelsea
