Lionel Messi's Next Club Odds: Messi's Odds Of Staying At Barcelona Cut 

Was Lionel Messi's press conference Oscar worthy? Online sports betting sites believe this could be the case as they've cut Messi's odds of staying at Barcelona overnight. 

Thousands of PSG fans turned up at the airport yesterday to welcome Lionel Messi to their club, however, were made to feel a little silly when pictures spread of Messi still at his Spanish home. 

Looking at the odds market for Lionel Messi's next club, PSG are still the massive favorites, however, there's been significant movement overnight. 

Lionel Messi's Odds To Stay At Barcelona

One European sports betting site cut Lionel Messi's odds of staying at Barcelona from +1400 to +350, which means the probability of Messi staying at Barcelona went from 6.7% to 22.2% overnight. 

That said, there's no hiding that Barcelona have financial issues, and if they were to resign Lionel Messi, he would be pretty much agreeing to play for nothing. Or, there would be some dodgy dealing going on....which isn't too foreign in the world of European soccer.

Lionel Messi To Sign For PSG 

As mentioned, Lionel Messi is still likely to sign for PSG, and his next club odds suggest this a very likely option. That said, overnight the odds were lengthened by numerous European sportsbooks. 

Yesterday, one sports betting site had Messi's odds of moving to PSG at -1600, however, this morning they are at -600.

This means the probability of Messi moving to PSG has gone from 94.1% to 85.7%

Could Lionel Messi Play In The MLS?

Moving to the MLS has been a popular move for European soccer stars nearing the end of their careers, and this is obviously an option for Lionel Messi.

Online sports betting sites have given odds of +1300 of Lionel Messi moving to the MLS, which implies there's a 7.1% chance this happens. 

Who would he sign for in the MLS though?
