Laudrup 9-1 to become next Bernabeu boss

MICHAEL LAUDRUP is certainly the man of the moment after leading Swansea to the Capital One Cup trophy and Paddy Power are of the opinion he could soon go on to much bigger things following on from the 5-0 bashing of Bradford at Wembley.

The great Dane is 9-1 to become Real Madrid’s next manager in a market headed by Carlo Ancelotti, who is 6-5 favourite, but there could be other jobs which become available in England over the summer.

Laudrup is 5-2 to depart Swansea before the start of the 2013-14 campaign, while he is 10-1 to be Arsene Wenger’s replacement at Arsenal and 16-1 to become Chelsea’s next boss. The 48-year-old is 20-1 to move to Manchester City or Manchester United when their respective hotseats next become available.

Expert verdict
High-flying Angers finished third on their way to promotion from Ligue 2 last season but they’ve adapted to the top flight brilliantly. Their matches are incredibly low-scoring, while for a dominant force PSG aren’t an especially free-scoring side on the road but the big-spending leaders should come out on top.
