Gareth Bale to Celtic: 10 transfers the bookies are offering odds on

It’s that time of year again, when the sad and lonely search for meaning in an existential world of football-less angst results in an infinite number of conversations about transfers that will never happen.

With that in mind, we’ve decided to have a look through moves that we personally cannot see going through in a million years, but some view as likely enough to have odds. We’re not going to add to the already ridiculous amount of gambling advertisements in the game by including the names of specific companies, but rest assured all prices are from big names rather than our mate Phil down the pub.

The list is ordered by the length of the odds, so it will start with eyebrow-raising and end on get-to-the-hospital-you’ve-taken-far-too-much-acid.

So, there we have it: Gareth Bale moving to Celtic is officially 25 times more likely to happen than Leicester winning the Premier League in 2016.
