In what could be the greatest indication of what Arsenal goalkeeper will be next season. Bookmakers Betfair have just announced they have stopped taking bets on Petr Cech to Arsenal. Earlier yesterday, it was reported that the gunners have had a bid of 11 million accepted for the player by Chelsea. Although reports claimed the gunners are still waiting on Jose Mourinho to sign off the deal, betfair who are expected to be in the know considering what they do, may have leaked open the already open secret ( it wasn’t really a secret was it? ).
Anytime a bookmaker stops taking bets on an event, it means they are convinced the event is likely to happen and have stopped talking bets on such events to avoid losing money. Could that be the case with Petr Cech?
Already, Arsenal according to goal.com have agreed personal terms with the player. Goal claims the Chelsea legend will sign a three years contract with Arsenal and will be put on a 100,000 a week deal. This deal if true is significantly less than what PSG are reportedly offering him which further goes to show the player’s desire to player for Arsenal or Arsene Wenger maybe?
With all the reports and the popular saying that there is no smoke without fire, it may be just a matter of days, not weeks before Arsenal announce they have successfully signed the champions league winner from Chelsea.
