Bookie paying out already on United title win

Bookie Fred Done is paying out on Manchester United winning the Premier League – with seven games still to play.
The Betfred millionaire, who supports the Reds, is coughing up after his team opened a five-point lead over second-place Manchester City.
Fred also paid up early in 1998 when Sir Alex Ferguson’s side was 12 points clear of Arsenal.
But he wasted £500,000 as the Gunners went on to win the title.
The bookie, from Salford, said: “In 1998, Fergie told me to never pay out early again but he need not worry, I’ve not got it wrong this time.”
He thinks the Blues will win next year though, and has them as 7/4 favourites.
