Millionaire bookie already betting on Man U for Premier League title

Manchester United

April 4, 2012 - London

Millionaire bookie Fred Done is sure Manchester United will go on to become English champions for the 20th time by pipping old foes Manchester City.

Done, who is an ardent United supporter, is coughing up after his team opened a five-point lead over second-place City.

He had also paid up early in 1998 when Sir Alex Ferguson's side was 12 points clear of Arsenal. But he wasted 500,000 pounds as the Gunners went on to win the title.

"In 1998, Fergie told me to never pay out early again but he need not worry, I've not got it wrong this time," The Mirror quoted Done, as saying.

But Done believes the Blues will win next year though, and has them as 7/4 favorites.
