On Thursday night, Barcelona FC announced that Lionel Messi will not be returning to the club after the two sides failed to agree to terms on a new contract.
It'll see the star footballer leave after first signing in 2004.
Now - the question to be asked is 'where will he end up?'
As far as I can guess - there are only two options. And one seems to be a longshot.
Paris St. Germain would be my number one prediction only because it has the money to afford Messi. Another rich club - Manchester City - would be number two on my list. However, I think there it is a very low second place even though there is ONE big reason why Messi could choose City.
The club is managed by Pep Guardiola; one of Messi's former bosses at Camp Nou.
The betting is kind of on the same wavelength as I because PSG is favourite to be Messi's next club. Manchester City is third with 'To Stay At Barcelona' in second place.
I don't know if the second-favourite is wishful thinking at this point. Time will prove that one.
