What next for Lionel Messi at Barcelona?
Lionel Messi is odds-on to leave Barcelona this summer according to our traders. Could a move to the Premier League be on the cards for the superstar?
The Argentine has sensationally handed in a transfer request and we make it just an 8/11 shot he leaves the Nou Camp during this transfer window.
Where could he end up? As things stand, it’s Manchester City who head the betting at 5/2 for Messi’s signature, with Inter Milan close behind at 3/1.
Elsewhere, Manchester United are priced at 9/1 to sign Messi with a move to London with Chelsea 12/1. Paris Saint-Germain (6/1) and Juventus (14/1) are also touted as possible destinations for Messi this summer.
It has been a busy first week in charge of Barcelona for Ronald Koeman who may have to rebuild his team without their prized asset next season.
Alex Apati of Ladbrokes said: “Football fans around the world are waiting to welcome Messi with open arms and as things stand it’s a two-horse race between City and Inter for his services.”
