Daily Odds & Transfer Rumour Round-up

Here is our daily round-up of the latest transfer rumours and some of the biggest events making the headlines which might be of interest to punters.

BetStars offers markets on some of the biggest potential moves so check out the latest odds in our transfers special section.

Gareth Bale/Eden Hazard/Sergio Aguero

Chelsea star Eden Hazard has been linked with a sensational move to Real Madrid in a swap deal with Gareth Bale.

The Daily Express says the European champions are prepared to offer winger Bale plus £100million to sign the Belgium international.

Hazard has been consistently linked with a move to the Bernabeu and is reportedly stalling on signing a bumper new contract at Stamford Bridge.

Although Hazard says he is happy in west London, he would not rule out a move in the future which could materialise in the summer.

Real Madrid are set to overhaul their underperforming squad after falling 17 points behind arch rivals Barcelona in the race for the title they won last season.

Bale may well be one of the players to pay the price for Real's disappointing season by joining the Blues, although Zinedine Zidane's position is also under scrutiny with only the Champions League to play for this season.

A Bale-Hazard swap deal is priced at 8/1, but longer odds are available on Sergio Aguero and Hazard trading places at 25/1.

A report in the Sunday Star suggests the Blues board would approve a deal to bring City's star striker to Stamford Bridge in exchange for Hazard.

Alan Pardew

Alan Pardew has just two games to save his job as West Brom manager in the wake of Saturday's FA Cup defeat by Southampton, according to The Sun.

Pardew was only appointed less than three months ago, but three successive Premier League defeats mean the Baggies are rooted to the bottom of the table, seven points adrift of safety.

West Brom host relegation rivals Huddersfield on Saturday and travel to Watford a week later when Pardew's reign could be over.

Club owner Guochuai Lai was reportedly already unhappy with results before Jonny Evans, Gareth Barry, Boaz Myhill and Jake Livermore allegedly stole a taxi during a training camp in Barcelona.

Evans was stripped of the captaincy on Saturday and with question marks surrounding Pardew's leadership, he looks to be on shaky ground.

Pardew has now been slashed from 20/1 to 11/8 to become the next Premier League manager to lose his job, with Chelsea boss Antonio Conte next in line at 11/4 followed by Southampton's Mauricio Pellegrino at 7/2.

Marcos Rojo

Paris Saint-Germain are thought to be preparing a summer move for Manchester United defender Marcos Rojo, who is out of contract next year.

United boss Jose Mourinho is said to be growing increasingly frustrated by the lack of progress in nailing down the centre-back to a new contract and the Ligue 1 leaders are waiting to pounce if no deal is agreed.

Rojo is viewed as an important part of the plans of Mourinho, who is thought to have been unhappy with the recent Premier League performances of Chris Smalling and Phil Jones.

The Argentina international has been eased back into action after sustaining an injury against Anderlecht last season which left him on the sidelines for seven months.
