Cristiano Ronaldo drifts in the top goalscorer betting amid uncertainty over Man Utd future

A potential switch to Bundesliga sees interest cool in Ronaldo, while Mohamed Salah and Erling Haaland gain support in the top goalscorer market.

Erling Haaland still heads the Premier League top goalscorer market but a number of moves and rumours have meant there has been a fair bit of fluctuation in the betting.

The Manchester City forward is available generally at around 3/1 to claim the Golden Boot, having been around 9/2 after making his switch from Borussia Dortmund.

The departure of Gabriel Jesus to Arsenal and Raheem Sterling's impending move to Chelsea will strip 21 goals from City's 2021/22 output and Haaland, as Pep Guardiola's attacking focal point, looks set to be the main beneficiary.

Confirmation that Mohamed Salah is staying at Anfield means the Liverpool man has come into around 9/2 to retain the crown he shared last year with Tottenham's Heung-min Son.

Harry Kane has remained steady at 6/1 but speculation surrounding the future of Cristiano Ronaldo has seen the Portuguese forward drift in the market.

Ronaldo has reportedly told Manchester United he wants to leave Old Trafford this summer. Chelsea are among the teams thought to be interested in his signature at 7/4, but with Bayern Munich (5/2) also in the running, the possibility of the 37-year-old departing the Premier League has seen his odds on heading the goalscoring charts drift out to 11/1.

Another forward who is short of support in the market is Heung-min Son. Son tied with Salah last season after a late run of form saw him finish the campaign with 23 goals.

However, the arrival of Richarlison at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium suggests the attacking burden may be shared in the forthcoming campaign - Son appeared in 37 of Spurs' 38 games in 2021/22.

Richarlison is now at Tottenham

In contrast, Richarlison has shortened after escaping Goodison. Nevertheless, he still remains a long shot at 66/1.

Returning to the head of the market, Liverpool's Darwin Nunez can still be backed at around 16/1, while Jesus' move to Arsenal has led to a shortening of the Brazilian's price.

Jesus was 28/1 ahead of his move to the Emirates but is as short as 14/1 in some places following his switch to north London.

And across the capital, Romelu Lukaku's return to Inter sees Kai Havertz (33/1) as the shortest-priced Chelsea player in the betting, with potential team-mate Raheem Sterling available at anything from 33/1 to 50s.
