Manchester United could be poised to make one of the biggest signings in their history.
Odds on the Red Devils recruiting Paris Saint-Germain striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic were slashed earlier this week after a series of significant bets were placed.
Ladbrokes and Betfair were both forced to cut their odds on Ibrahimovic being a United player when the transfer window closes in September, from 20/1 – to 7/2 and 3/1 respectively.
AC Milan are the other main contenders in the race to sign the 33-year-old Sweden legend. The Rossoneri are 5/4 with Ladbrokes.
United may have a trump card to help them gazump Milan though. PSG are keen to sign Angel Di Maria, so the Red Devils could use the Argentine in a part exchange deal.
Ladbrokes make Di Maria is 1/3 to be a PSG player by September.
