Benteke expected to stay put and not join Arsenal or Liverpool
Despite all the rumours regarding his exit, Aston Villa still hold all the cards dictating whether or not Belgian powerhouse Christian Benteke will stay at the club next season, and unsurprisingly the bookies’ favourites to hang on to their star striker when the summer transfer window closes in August.
22 year old Benteke, who enthralled fans with his outstanding finishing this season is soon to be the recipient of a new contract from the Birmingham club, which will see his wages reportedly double to a competitive 50,000 pounds a week. However, after scoring 19 goals in the Premier League last season there are no shortage of takers for Benteke, with clubs outside England also reportedly keen on getting into the action.
Arsenal, Tottenham and Liverpool are the local favourites to snatch the striker away from the Villans, and have some good odds on offer depending on which betting website meets your fancy. Borussia Dortmund meanwhile remains his most likely foreign destination, though Barcelona and Real Madrid are also believed to be watching the young striker.
