After a shock announcement from FC Barcelona that Lionel Messi will not be continuing at the club, Paris Saint Germain have been installed as the bookmakers favourites for Messi’s next club.
Despite reports that a new deal for Barcelona’s number ten to stay was imminent, a shock statement from the club appears to have brought Lionel Messi’s time at his boyhood club to an end. At best odds of 4/5, PSG are the bookmaker’s favourite to sign the six-time Ballon D’or winner.
However, some remain sceptical that Messi’s time in Catalunya is up and odds for him to stay at the Blaugranes are 3/1, despite being as short as 13/5 with one bookmaker.

A dispute between Barcelona and La Liga surrounding wage rules has led some to believe that the statement could be a power-play to help navigate Barcelona’s well documented financial problems.
Man City are third favourites at a best price of 5/1 to win Messi’s signature, in a move that would see him reunited with his former manager. With a £100m deal agreed for Jack Grealish, it remains to be seen whether City’s finances can stretch to afford Messi’s wage demands.
