Barclays Premier League: David Silva To Be Unveiled To City Fans After Today’s Medical
Bookmakers are offering free bets and special offers for Manchester City’s campaigns in the Barclays Premier League, FA Cup, Carling Cup and Europa League this coming season.
David Silva arrived for his medical this morning ahead of completing his £24million move from Valencia to Manchester City.
The Spanish midfielder is reported to have agreed a £160,000-a-week deal at Eastlands and will officially be unveiled once he has received the all clear from City’s medical team.
On agreeing the move last month, he said: ‘I have enjoyed six years at Valencia, they discovered me as a footballer and they will always be a special club for me.
World Cup winner, Silva will sign a four-year deal to join Yaya Toure bought from Barcelona and Jerome Boateng who made the move to Eastlands from Hamburg.
City’s summer strengthening has seen their Premier League odds shorten from 7/1 at the beginning of the month and they are now best priced at 5/1 with Paddy Power.
The trio will help City in their push for trophies which fans must see as a necessity given the huge investment by the club’s oil rich owners.
Bookmakers are betting on which combination of trophies the Blues will win next season with the FA Cup/Carling Cup double a popular bet at 45/1 with Paddy Power who also offer the more traditional FA Cup/Premier League double at 33/1.
Bookies are not noted for their generosity and shrewdies William Hill go 1/3 that City fans will be disappointed yet again with another trophyless season.
