PSG Odds-On Favourites To Sign Lionel Messi

Lionel Messi will sensationally leave Barcelona this summer after the La Liga club were unable to fulfil a new contract due to "financial and structural obstacles".

The six-time Ballon d'Or winner has officially been a free agent since July 1 and looked set to take a 50 per cent pay cut at the Camp Nou, however, negotiations did not progress well.

After his previous deal expired on June 30, the Blaugana's all-time top scorer and greatest ever player will now be leaving his beloved Barca - but where will the Argentine end up?

Messi has spent his entire career at the Catalan club, coming through its academy, before going on to score 672 goals in 778 appearances after making his senior debut in 2003.

Barca insist both they and Messi were willing to extend his stay, but claim La Liga regulations have made that impossible.

Paris Saint-Germain are the predictable leaders of the race for his signature, with Sky Sports citing his friendship with Neymar and eagerness to keep winning trophies as the main motivation.

The Independent go as far as to say that Messi was in touch with PSG manager Mauricio Pochettino on Thursday evening. Make of that what you will.

PSG are 1/2 favourites to sign Messi to a deal, with Manchester City set at a price of 6/1. It is 5/2 for Barcelona to work things out to continue his stint with the Catalan giants.

Lionel Messi next club odds

  • Paris Saint-Germain - 1/2
  • Barcelona - 5/2
  • Manchester City - 6/1
  • Any MLS side - 16/1
