Chelsea boss Carlo Ancelotti may have put his foot down saying Ashley Cole will '100 per cent' be wearing blue next season, but the bookies aren't convinced.
The left-back, who is considered to be unsettled after some problems in his personal life, is a thin 1.44 with Titan Bet to join Real Madrid and link up with his old boss Jose Mourinho at the Bernabeu.
It's understood that a potential deal would cost Los Blancos in the region of £30 million. If you fancy Cole to remain at Stamford Bridge he is 2.65 to be a member of the Chelsea squad still when the transfer window closes.
As for the summer's longest running transfer saga, the bookmakers are convinced Cesc Fabregas will remain a Gunner despite being pictured in a Barcelona shirt during Spain's World Cup celebrations.
"The less said about Barcelona, the better," the midfielder told Marca last week. Titan Bet reckon Fabregas won't join his boyhood club at short odds of 1.35. You'll get 2.90 on him swapping the Emirates for the Camp Nou in time for next season.
One man who has switched to La Liga is Jose Mourinho, although his deal with Real Madrid includes an annual termination clause. The Special One can walk away scot free at the end of each season under his four-year deal, while Los Blancos can give him the boot without compensation if he fails to deliver every trophy in sight.
Bookies are alert to this and are already taking bets on Mourinho returning to England and his favourite league. He's 3.75 to take over from Sir Alex Ferguson at Old Trafford. The Portuguese tactician has made no secret his desire to come back to the Premier League and he would have plenty of offers.
Big spending Manchester City, who were linked with Mourinho before, are 5.50 to be his next English club. An emotional return to Chelsea is a long shot at present at 8.50.
