Behind Al-Hilal is FC Barcelona at 2.40, which is the favorite European option, per the odds provided. The Spanish club will do everything in its power for Messi to return to Camp Nou, but a financial offer is likely something they won’t compete with Al-Hilal.
Coming in the third likely destination for Messi this summer is Inter Miami. The MLS side has an 8 regarding the odds of having the 2022 FIFA World Cup winner in their squad to wrap up the 2023 season.
Meanwhile, PSG and even Manchester City come behind the three probable landing spots for Messi. Finally, the long shot is a return to Argentina with Newell’s Old Boys.
