Man Utd still odds-on to sign Real Madrid star on deadline day

Manchester United are currently priced at 1/6 by Skybet to sign Real Madrid left-back Fabio Coentrao before tonight's transfer deadline.

The 25-year-old, who came close to sealing a deadline-day move to Manchester United last summer, could finally get his move to Old Trafford if the betting patterns provide a clue.

There is now less than one hour to go before the transfer window slams shut so United will need to act swiftly in order to finalise a deal for the Portugal international.

United boss David Moyes has been determined to sign another left-back ever since he arrived at Old Trafford last summer.

As well as failing in his initial pursuit for Coentrao, Moyes also unsuccessfully attempted to sign Everton's Leighton Baines, who signed a new contract at Goodison Park this month.

United's current first-choice left-back Patrice Evra is expected to leave the club when his contract expires at the end of the season, while Alex Buttner has failed to convince since joining the Red Devils from Vitesse in 2012.
