Manchester United fan placed £25 bet on the club winning quadruple at the start of the season, and will bag crazy amount
| Last updated
One punter could make a huge profit from his £25 bet, if Manchester United manage to pull off an incredible quadruple of trophy wins.
At the start of the season United were expected to improve on their previous campaign, although that wouldn't have been too difficult considering what happened under Ralf Rangnick.
However, there's no way many people would have thought that Erik ten Hag could have been competing for all four competitions they entered this season.
The Premier League race certainly would have seemed beyond them, but Dimitar Berbatov thinks they're right in it, being only five points behind league leaders Arsenal.
The win over Barcelona on Thursday means that their dreams of European success remain alive, with the players really looking like they believed in the project.
Sunday's Carabao Cup final with Newcastle United could be the first step to what would be a ridiculous quadruple, one Paul Scholes fully believes his former team can win.
The ex midfielder isn't the only one either, according to Betfair, 13 punters placed bets at the beginning of the season for Ten Hag's side to win the league, FA Cup, Carabao Cup and Europa League.
One of those put on a £25 bet and could win £62,525, from the 2,500/1 odds that they got at the beginning of the season.

With Nick Pope out of Sunday's final at Wembley, no matter how much Newcastle fans wanted that to not be the case, Ten Hag's side are favourites for the Carabao Cup.
Eddie Howe's side have been waiting even longer than their opponents for silverware, having last won a major trophy in 1955, when they won the FA Cup.
United aren't quite favourites to take home the last trophy the Magpies won though, with local rivals Manchester City still ahead of them in the betting.
Both sides have fifth round ties coming up, with City away to Championship side Bristol City and United facing West Ham United at home.
After beating Barcelona, and drawing Real Betis in the last 16, United are favourites to lift the Europa League trophy, which is also the last one they go their hands on back in 2017.
Premier League leaders Arsenal are behind them in that betting but ahead of them for the Premier League, where City are favourites once again.
