Mark Hughes has come to the realisation that his club needs another striker to pair with Robinho. Whilst Jo was brought in to do the job, Hughes believes his team needs a bigger name. This striker would surely fit the bill!
Mark Hughes will try to prise Thierry Henry from Barcelona when the transfer window opens in January. Former Arsenal striker Henry is expected to leave the Nou Camp after failing to make an impact in Spain and Manchester City boss Hughes has asked to be kept informed of developments.
City desperately need a reliable forward to complement their attacking midfielders because Hughes and his staff feel Brazilian Jo, 20, will not come into his own for another year at least.
Henry, 31, has been at Barcelona for a little over a season but has never settled and is keen to return to England. Last night Hughes stressed City fans should be patient as he builds a team to challenge for honours. (Daily Mail)
Henry playing for Manchester City? Not that would be a shocker! Whilst the January window is still a long way off, it appears Hughes is already getting his wish-list ready for the new ownership. It’s no shock that Henry wants to move back to the Premier League after failing to impress during his stay at Barcelona.
What do City supporters think about this move? Would you welcome a slightly older Thierry Henry to the squad?
