Is there any chance in the world that former Arsenal man would make move to east London?
WEST HAM have made an amazing bid to sign Thierry Henry.
Hammers joint-chairman David Sullivan this week offered the Barcelona ace, 32, a two-year deal, worth more than £7.5million, to land him.
Sullivan is prepared to pay Arsenal legend Henry around £75,000 a week. He said: “We’re trying to assemble a more prolific strike force at West Ham and I’d love to have Henry here.
“Our club is in debt but a striker of his quality and standing would make it a great deal. Henry is still up there with the best.
“I’ve made an offer which would make him the highest-paid player in the club’s history.
“And it’s a serious offer because Henry could walk into almost any Premier League side.”
Avram Grant’s imminent appointment as Hammers’ new manager will trigger a reshuffle of players, with some big names set to go.
Sullivan said: “We do not anticipate losing more than two first-team players.
“The idea is to sell maybe two and a few fringe players and bring in five new ones. We do not want to decimate the squad but rebuild it.” (BBC Sport)
Yes West Ham snared Javier Mascherano and Carlos Tevez, but this is surely a deal too far. I personally see no way Thierry Henry will ever play for any other Premier League club than Arsenal. Even the offer of £7.8m over two years may not be enough to tempt the French international.
Does anyone think this deal may be accepted? Or is the bid is actually just pure fiction?
