German giants FC Bayern are considered a frontrunner in the race to sign Juventus FC Dutch defender Matthijs De Ligt, which is also depicted in some of the top bookmakers' odds. Betfair offers the selection at 1/5, while LVbet seems a bit more certain with 1/8 odds. FC Bayern are urge to sign a top-class defender as Dayot Upamecano is the only really trustworthy solution, at the same time that Benjamin Pavard is linked with transfer rumors, too.
On the other side, Chelsea is also looking to sign a world-class stopper, having lost two indispensable members of their defence in Antonio Rudiger and Andreas Christensen. De Ligt looks like the ideal candidate and the main target, offered at 4/1 odds on Betfair.
Lastly, Juventus is waiting for the right offer, which from their perspective will be no less than £60 million. As soon as they offload De Ligt, they will make a move towards his replacement, with the main candidates being Villareal's Pau Torres and "Derby della Mole" rivals Torino's Bremer.

When it was established back in 2000, the Betfair betting exchange revolutionized online gambling. It gave bettors the ability to compete against each other based on a poker or stock exchange model. Players can bet with very high limits and also cover their wagers with more fair conditions compared to the Cash Out feature that traditional bookmakers offer. Professional bettors can use the exchange as a tool to follow market trends and sell their bets. The high liquidity almost guarantees that your bets will be traded. Betfair is up-to-date with the latest features, like Bet Builder and Request a Bet, and added a fixed-odds section, too. However, the sportsbook payout is below par. Although the market depth in the exchange is huge, it is not as it once was. The liquidity of less popular sports and leagues has decreased dramatically due to the inability of some countries to regulate the betting exchanges, which forced Betfair to exit strategic markets. Moreover, the commission fees are relatively steep compared to other exchanges, such as Matchbook or Smarkets. There are additional charges if you are a very successful trader. Overall, if you are looking to bet on the exchange, then Betfair is unrivalled to any other company.
