Betting on January Transfers – 10 Players Ready to Swap Turfs

Transfer windows are one of the best and most exciting things in football. Every football club
wants to improve its squad, and many players seek greener pastures. For some people,
following transfers isn’t enough. They might also want to place a bet on where they predict the
player will transfer to. To be clear, that’s far from easy.

Because predicting player transfers can be extremely challenging, we wanted to make it easier.
That’s why, together with betting experts from, we gathered a list of
ten players more or less likely to transfer to a new club during the January transfer window. We
also mention the probability for a specific player to move away from their club and the most
likely destinations for them.

10. Bruno Fernandes - Probability: 1/10

During the past couple of weeks, there have been plenty of rumors about the 29-year-old
Manchester United skipper wanting to leave the club. According to the gossip, his manager has
opened talks with an unnamed club playing in the Saudi Pro League. However, in a recent
interview, Bruno insisted he’ll not leave Manchester United.

9. Kylian Mbappé - Probability: 1/10

The 24-year-old Frenchman is one of the best players in the world and is in the final year of his
contract with PSG. That means that if he doesn’t move to a new club during the January
transfer window, he can move to a new club as a free agent next summer. Real Madrid has long
been the club touted with the forward’s signature, but this month, the club revealed they don’t
want to sign him anymore. After Real Madrid’s statement, Barcelona, Chelsea, and Manchester
United have joined the line to get Mbappé’s signature.

8. Victor Boniface - Probability: 3/10

The 22-year-old Nigerian striker moved from Union SG to Bayer Leverkusen just a few months
ago. He has settled in quickly, and his excellent performances have caught the attention of even
more significant football clubs, like Real Madrid and Arsenal. Real Madrid seeks a new striker
for their starting eleven, and Arsenal is struggling with an injury crisis. Even though a transfer to
a big club might sound tempting, the transfer seems unlikely to happen. Boniface has just joined
the club, is their first-choice striker, and the team is at the top of the league.

7. Martín Zubimendi - Probability: 5/10

For the past two seasons, Martín Zubimendi has been one of the best defensive midfielders in
the world, and he’s still just 24 years old! He has been playing for Real Sociedad since 2016,
and due to his excellent performances, he might finally get his move to some of the best clubs in
the world of football. For example, Zubimendi has been heavily linked with Bayern München
after they failed to sign João Palhinha last summer.

6. Khvicha Kvaratskhelia - Probability: 5/10

Last season, the 22-year-old Georgian winger took the Serie A by storm and helped Napoli win
their first Scudetto since the season 1989-1990. Even though Kvaratskhelias’ performances
have dropped a bit since last season, he’s still a top player. Kvarathskhelia seems to enjoy his
life in Italy, but Newcastle United is keen on bringing the Georgian national team's star player to
the Premier League. Only time will tell whether Newcastle can pay the transfer fee to get his
signature or whether Kvaratskhelia even wants to leave the Serie A title contender.

5. Nico Williams - Probability: 6/10

Nico Williams is one for the future and is also in the final year of his contract with Athletic Bilbao.
During 22/23, the 21-year-old Spaniard made his final breakthrough for the club and the
Spanish national team. Even though Williams is likely to sign a new contract with Bilbao, the
offers from Premier League teams, such as Aston Villa and Newcastle United, might be too
good to turn down. The most significant reason for him to stay at Athletic Bilbao is to play with
his brother, but is that a good enough reason for him not to take the next step in his career?

4. Ivan Toney - Probability: 7/10

Ivan Toney is one of the most intriguing players on the list, but not necessarily because of his
recent performances. Last May, the 27-year-old Englishman was banned for eight months for
breaching FA betting rules
. Even though he hasn’t played competitive football in several
months, plenty of top English clubs are after his signature. No one knows how good he is when
he can finally play again, but there are rumors that Arsenal, Tottenham, and Manchester United
are ready to take the risk with this traditional target man.

3. David De Gea - Probability: 8/10

Just last year, David De Gea had the most clean sheets in the league and won the Golden
Glove while playing for Manchester United. Despite plenty of excellent performances, De Gea
also had plenty of plunders. At the end of the season, he’s contract ended, and Manchester
didn’t want to give him a new one. David De Gea has been a free agent for almost six
months and is more than likely to join a new club during the January transfer window. Clubs like
Al-Nassr, Real Betis, and Atlético Madrid have all shown interest in signing him. However, at the
moment, the most likely option for him is to head back to Old Trafford.

2. Lucas Paquetá - Probability: 8/10

A little over a year ago, West Ham signed the 26-year-old Brazilian attacking midfielder from
Olympique Lyon. His start at the Premier League wasn’t the best possible, but it didn’t take him
long to set the Hammers on fire. After an impressive first season in English top-tier football,
Manchester City saw him as a potential replacement for Ilkay Gündoğan. However, due to his
potential betting breaches from the FA, City turned down the opportunity to sign the Brazilian.
Lately, there have been rumors that Manchester City is willing to take the risk and is again after
Paquetá’s signature.

1. Jadon Sancho - Probability: 9/10

Jadon Sancho’s career at Manchester United has been more or less a disaster. He had a future
written in the stars, but his time at United didn’t turn out to be as good as expected. The final
nail in the coffin was when he fought with Manchester United’s manager, Erik ten Hag. Because
of that, at the moment, only one thing is sure: United wants to sell Sancho as soon as possible.
Even though everything hasn’t gone as planned, plenty of clubs are still eager to give Sancho
another chance. If and when Sancho leaves United, he will likely join Juventus or Chelsea.
