It’s been one of the most active soccer betting transfer seasons we’ve seen in years. But among the moves that have caught the attention of the public betting on soccer none have been bigger than Cristiano Ronaldo’s move from Man U to Real Madrid.
Soccer betting fans can hardly be surprised by the deal. Ronaldo has been angling for a transfer to the Spanish giant for years and Fergie was simply waiting to dump him when his soccer betting value was at its highest. After winning the FIFA World Player of the Year and leading the team to the betting on soccer Champions League Final in back-to-back years the opportunity was ripe.
Man U got a major wad of cash in return –the highest transfer in the history of soccer betting- but his departure also leaves a major void that must be filled before the betting on soccer season starts up. The team, one of the richest in all of betting on soccer action, could afford to buy several superstars with the $140 million it received for top player in soccer betting. But so far it’s made no major moves to replace the team’s top scorer and centerpiece of one of the best attacks in soccer betting last year.
In fact the team has said it would make no major moves in the soccer betting off season. That seems a bit strange –and perhaps frustrating to the Red Devil soccer betting faithful- considering Argentine forward Carlos Teves was also jettisoned in during this hiatus in the soccer betting action. That leaves Man U a bit thin up front and that could come back to bite the team late in the betting on soccer action. If this team wants to compete in the EPL and in the European soccer betting stage it needs more offensive depth. Right now it will not win either soccer betting title.
There’s still time to bring in new talent. But if the powers that be at Old Trafford decide against using their newfound riches to bring in more scoring it could be a very long season for the Red Devil soccer betting faithful. Not that this team will fall off the soccer betting map, but with teams like Chelsea restocking and the ever dangerous Liverpool clipping at their heels, Man U looks to be the odd man out in the EPL race; and that’s to say nothing of the Champions League competition.
