In today’s most unlikely rumour, um, Daily Star has decided that Newcastle, Manchester City and Arsenal are all trying to get Thierry Henry to come back to England. Strangely, I can actually see City and Newcastle sniffing around and hoping for a bit of luck, but there’s no chance that Arsenal are going to welcome Henry back after all the ‘we’re better without him’ stuff the players and coach were spouting all season.
Henry has had a less than amazing season at Barcelona, but after spending so long playing in such a specific way for Wenger he probably needs a good period to settle in. If he stays at Barca, expect much better things from him.
But should he decide that he wants to come back to England, and he won’t, we can’t see someone of his ego dropping down to sign for a team outside the Champions League.
So while “Henry to (teamwithmoney)” rumours won’t go away this summer, does anyone think there’s a real chance of it happening?
