The news tonight that Lionel Messi has requested an exit from Barcelona has opened one of the truly most interesting next club betting odds markets in recent years.
With the appointment of Koeman to Barcelona, it was thought the Argentinian playmaker would look to stay on at the Spanish champions.
Instead it looks as if Messi will depart the La Liga club.
So where next for Messi?
Does he follow Ronaldo to Italy with Inter Milan touted as a destination to join up with Antonio Conte’s side.
Could Messi and Ronaldo join forces at Juventus for something truly magical?
Its thought that France or England are likely destinations with PSG who’ve just lost out on the Champions League to Bayern Munich from the Bundesliga.
In England, there are a number of clubs that would be interested, but remains to be seen who will go in for him and who has the financial muscle to snap him up.
Man Utd and Man City would be immediate choices, but remains to be seen whether Messi can do it on a cold, wet Tuesday night at Old Trafford or The Etihad.
We’ll be keeping an eye on this market as the summer progresses and see where Ronaldo starts the new season.
