So let’s now look at some of the Transfer Specials bets available at bet365 Sport, together with our top tip for each.

For each special, the bet is for the player to be at the stated club on the 3rd September 2023.

Bet365 Sport Transfer Specials Markets

  • Joao Cancelo (Manchester City) – Barcelona – 15/8, Arsenal – 9/4, Stay with Man City – 3/1, Real Madrid – 9/2

The Portuguese full back is super-talented, but Bayern munich are not going to sign him. Plus his time at City seems up – A fall out with manager Pep Guardiola seems to have sealed that.

Barcelona and Real Madrid have been linked with the full back, but I think he could follow Zinchenko and Gabriel Jesus in making the move from Man City to Arsenal allowing Ben White to move either into a more central defensive, or defensive midfield role. – Tip – Arsenal – 9/4.

  • Declan Rice (West Ham) – Arsenal – 1/6, Chelsea – 9/1, Bayern Munich – 10/1, Man Utd – 12/1, Stay at West Ham – 16/1

It seems as though Rice has played his last game for West Ham after having been promised a move this summer. Arsenal are the very strong favourites to land the defensive midfielder. But Chelsea and Bayern Munich have been strongly linked too.

Personally, I feel Rice’s best fit would be at Manchester United or Liverpool, but interest from these two seems lukewarm. As such, even though they are odds on, Arsenal are once again the team to back here. Tip – Arsenal – 1/6.

  • Kylian Mbappe (Paris St Germain) – To stay at PSG – 2/5, Real Madrid – 2/1, Man Utd – 12/1, Chelsea 33/1, Man City, Newcastle or any Saudi Arabian team – 40/1

The French superstar has let it be known he won’t sign an extension to his contract that ends next summer. This means PSG will have to sell Mbappe now, or in the winter window, in order to realise some of his massive sell-on potential.

PSG have the financial clout to keep Mbappe for one year and let him go, which is what the bookmakers feel may well happen. However, I think this may be an opportune time for Real Madrid to strike to land their replacement for Benzema. Tip – Real Madrid – 2/1.

  • Neymar Jr. (Paris St Germain) – To stay at PSG – 1/2, Any Saudi Arabian team – 3/1, Man Utd – 8/1, Chelsea – 10/1, Barcelona – 11/1, Man City – 20/1, Newcastle – 25/1.

Mbappe may not be the only big name star heading out of Paris this summer. Brazilian ace Neymar is also reportedly set to move on, although the favoured odds seem to suggest he stays at PSG for one more year.

There may well be truth to that, with Messi going and Mbappe also possibly moving on too. However, PSG have said they want to go in a new direction and that could mean Neymar is available at the right price. This won’t be cheap, hence I think the Saudi Arabian option is a strong contender. Tip – Any Saudi Arabian Team – 3/1.
