Betting on transfers is all about not buying into rumors and trusting respected sources of information. You’ll also need to use your intuition and ask yourself if this deal makes sense.
Often rumors will go around so agents can get a better deal for their clients and not because they want to leave the club.
A perfect example of this was in the summer of 2017 when Sergio Ramos was adamant that he wanted a new challenge and was joining Man Utd. This turned out to be complete B******** as he wanted an improved contract with Real Madrid.
To bet on Transfers successfully you’ll need to know who to trust and who not to believe.
Below are the most reliable accounts to follow on Twitter.
NB: Keep in mind Bookies will often be slow to react to breaking news, so keep a close eye on these accounts can be very beneficial.

Does the price offer value?
Ask yourself what’s the percentage chance of this deal going through in your mind? Is it 50/50? If so consider the odds. If the bookie is offering 2.5 (6/4) and you believe it’s 50/50 then that would imply that the 2.5 on offer is a value bet

Which Bookies offer the best odds on Transfer moves?
From my experience, Paddy Power, SkyBet, Bet Victor, Betfair, William Hill, Unibet and Bet365 offer the best variety of markets. These bookmakers will also allow you to request a price even if it’s not listed on their website.
You will also want to get familiar with Oddschecker.com who will often list price comparisons for these special markets.
