Betfred boss Fred Done has once againÂ decided it's already time to pay out onÂ Manchester United'sÂ 20th Premier League title.
Two late goals for the reds at Blackburn on Monday night stretched their lead to five points and the Manchester United supporting bookmaker decidedÂ there was no way back for City now.
Fred Done said,
"Even with the Derby to come, a five point lead is just too much for City, so once again I'mÂ letting my United puntersÂ have their dough early to the tune of just over half million quid."
Fred Done was the first ever bookmaker to pay out early back in March 1998 when Manchester United were twelve points clear of Arsenal, only for the Gunners to pip the reds by one point.
"Back in 1998, Fergie told me to never pay out early again but Sir AlexÂ need not worry, I've not got it wrong this time, United are past the post for a record twentieth Premier League title."
However, the bookmaker does believeÂ the experience will serve City well for the futureÂ and has installed theÂ Blues as 7/4 favourites for next season's Premier League.
