Chelsea face Hazard, Courtois and Kante exits
WITH the World Cup over, the focus switches to the start of the Premier League season and bookmakers think it could be a busy build-up to the campaign for new Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri.
The firm make Blues stars Eden Hazard and Thibaut Courtois long odds-on, at 4-9 and 4-11, to move to Real Madrid before the end of the summer transfer window while Willian is 10-11 to join Barcelona.
And France World Cup winner N'Golo Kante is another player who could be on his way out of Stamford Bridge with Paris St-Germain just 9-4 to sign the midfielder this summer.
However, Betway go 8-15 that Juventus striker Gonzalo Higuain, who thrived under Sarri at Napoli, will be at Chelsea for the 2018-19 campaign.
Ladbrokes make six Chelsea players 2-1 or shorter to leave the club this summer with Hazard the shortest price to depart at 1-6.
Striker Alvaro Morata is 4-7 to leave and England midfielder Ruben Loftus-Cheek, who spent last season on loan at Crystal Palace, is 6-4 to head off to pastures new.
Coral make the Blues 7-2 to sign striker Robert Lewandowski from Bayern Munich in this transfer window while other potential targets include Manchester United's Anthony Martial (9-2), Stoke goalkeeper Jack Butland (6-1) and Burnley defender James Tarkowski (8-1).
Ladbrokes are betting on which Premier League manager leaves his position next and Watford's Javi Gracia is 4-1 favourite in the sack race.
Mark Hughes, who narrowly kept Southampton up last term, is next in the betting at 6-1 with Leicester's Claude Puel and Newcastle's Rafael Benitez 8-1.
Ladbrokes go 16-1 that Sarri's spell at Chelsea goes sour swiftly while new Arsenal boss Unai Emery is a 25-1 chance.
