Bayern Munich have lengthened out to 8/1 third favourites, followed by Chelsea (10/1), Liverpool (10/1), Manchester United (16/1) and Real Madrid (20/1).

Having played his entire career with Barcelona, Messi’s exit has seen a slump in their odds for glory this season, drifting out to 25/1.

Oddschecker spokesperson Callum Wilson: “To the surprise of precisely nobody, PSG are now favourites to win the Champions League. 

"As if Neymar and Mbappe weren't enough, the likely of addition of Lionel Messi has turned the Parisian attack into the most terrifying sight in the whole of Europe. 

"Manchester City are stacked with talent of their own, but the bookies have finally had their heads turned thanks to the Messi factor."
