Odds slashed in half on Lionel Messi joining Manchester City

Will the Argentine reunite with Pep Guardiola at the Etihad?

Our traders can report they have slashed their odds in half on Lionel Messi joining Manchester City this summer to 5/2 (from 5/1).

City are the favourites in the betting to secure the Argentine, while Messi is 3/1 to move to Inter Milan and 7/1 to transfer to Paris Saint-German.

Messi is thought to be unsettled after Barcelona’s stunning Champions League collapse against Bayern Munich, while Man City will be having an inquest of their own after that shock loss to Lyon.

“This is a significant move in the betting and could suggest the magician is set to link up with his former manager Pep Guardiola again at Manchester City,” said Coral’s John Hill.

“City will have been very disappointed with the way they were eliminated from the Champions League this season and this would be a huge step in their bid to try and win that trophy,” added Hill.
