After suffering the humiliation of an 8-2 destruction by Bayern Munich in the Champions League quarterfinals, word is Lionel Messi may be looking to leave Barcelona.
If the GOAT is truly gone, where will he go?
Here’s a curation of odds from various sportsbooks on Messi’s potential destination.
Lionel Messi next club odds
|Manchester City +250||Inter Milan +300||PSG +1000||Liverpool +1400|
|Newells Old Boys +1600||Juventus +2000||Manchester United +2000||Bayern Munich +3300|
Odds & Ends
- We don’t disagree that Inter, Manchester City, and PSG would make the most sense. PSG in particular could appeal to Messi. They can afford him. He’d get to reunite with Neymar. And the daily grind of French football is less taxing than that in the Premier League or Bundesliga.
- Bookies have a MLS move priced around +4000. We agree with that assessment. It’s probably a year or two too soon for Messi to come stateside.
- For the sportsbooks that do offer Barcelona, the Catalans are priced at -1400. The most likely scenario–especially given COVID-economics– is Messi stays.
