Premier League winner: United trimmed after Sancho swoop

Manchester United are 15/2 in bwin’s Premier League winner predictions after agreeing a deal to sign England winger Jadon Sancho.

The 21-year-old will cost United £73million from Borussia Dortmund but fills a big need in Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s plans.

Sancho was part of Manchester City’s academy before leaving the club to sign for Dortmund in August 2017.

He has made 137 appearances in all competitions for the German club, scoring 50 goals, as well as regularly featuring among the leading providers of Bundesliga assists.

This summer’s delayed Euro 2020 tournament has given Sancho chance to team up with prospective Old Trafford team-mates Luke Shaw, Harry Maguire and Marcus Rashford.

“Yeah, Luke is a great lad – I always have a good relationship with him, Marcus and Harry, so it’s going to be fun,” he told talkSPORT.

United finished second last season and have also been heavily linked with Real Madrid defender Raphael Varane and Rennes teenager Eduardo Camavinga.

Manchester City are 4/6 favourites to finish top of the table for the fourth time in five seasons after ending last term 12 points clear of their neighbours.

Pep Guardiola is expected to seek a replacement for Barcelona-bound Sergio Aguero at the head of his wanted list.

Tottenham striker Harry Kane and 20-year-old Dortmund sensation Erling Haaland are believed to be City’s main targets.

Reds bid to strengthen defence

Liverpool produced a late surge to end up third last season and are 5/1 to repeat their 2020 title triumph.

The Reds have already recruited RB Leipzig centre-half Ibrahima Konate for £36m and will hope to have Virgil van Dijk back from injury to play alongside him.

“I’m really happy to be joining such a massive club like Liverpool,” 22-year-old Konate said. “It’s a really exciting moment for me and my family.”

Chelsea will be looking to build on their Champions League success and can also be backed at 5/1 in bwin’s Premier League winner odds.

The big-spending Blues are another team reportedly in the running to land Norway forward Haaland.

Leicester faded late on to finish fifth last season and are 40/1 to match their amazing exploits of the 2015-16 campaign.

Brendan Rodgers has brought in Zambia striker Patson Daka from Red Bull Salzburg for £23m after he scored 34 goals in 42 appearances in all competitions last term.

Daka, 22, told LCFC TV: “I’m so, so excited to join this great, historic club. It has been my dream and I’m so happy and looking forward to what’s coming next.

“I have followed Leicester from the time they won the league. I feel it is the perfect place for me because it’s a team that fights for titles.”

The Foxes have also snapped up young Lille midfielder Boubakary Soumare for £17m on a five-year deal.

North London duo Tottenham and Arsenal are aiming to bounce back from below-par efforts, with Spurs 40/1 and the Gunners 66/1.
