Thierry Henry Could Join MLS Club New York Red Bulls

France international Thierry Henry is most likely to move to Major League Soccer (MLS) this summer. The Barcelona striker has been linked with MLS club New York Red Bulls who are eyeing on the player over the last one year and is trying their best to secure his service.

Though West Ham United is also interested to sign Henry, it seems he would prefer a move to the United States. The former Arsenal star joined Barcelona in 2007, but could not make any considerable impact for the Catalan side. Henry may have won two Spanish League titles and a Champions League title with Barcelona, but he could never cement his place in the first eleven.

Given his recent form, it is no surprise that he would like to move somewhere else where he would get more first tem football. He is now 32 and many star players from Europe spent their last phase of the career in MLS.

West Ham United would be disappointed at his decision, but it is pretty much understandable that Henry has received a better offer from New York Red Bulls and at his age any player would put more attention on the financial part of a deal. However, it is not yet known if Henry has agreed a deal with the MLS side.

  1. Lets hope. After the debacle at the World Cup for France, maybe Thierry has something to prove and hopefully he can do it as a Red Bull in New York. I'm a TFC fan but having Henry in an MLS uniform just makes the product a little better and a line of Angel and Henry, the minus -2 in goal differential will disappear almost instantly. Come to MLS Henry.
