Henry hints at MLS switch

Barcelona forward Thierry Henry has revealed will leave the European champions in 2011 and may join a Major League Soccer side in the United States.

The former Arsenal captain, who netted 174 league goals in 254 appearances for Arsene Wenger's side, overcame a stuttering first season with the Camp Nou side to play a key role in Pep Guardiola's treble-winning team in 2008/09.

The 31-year-old - who finally lifted the Champions League trophy in May having lost to Barcelona with Arsenal in 2006 - is currently contracted to the la Liga outfit in 2011.

And at a recent promotional event in New York, the French international revealed that he could be tempted to follow LA Galaxy midfielder David Beckham across the pond once his current deal expires, with the New York Red Bulls a possible destination.

“Could I play for New York Red Bulls at some point? It could be possible in 2011," he told Sport.

"One never knows, but the truth is that it is an option that could be likely.

"I want to stay with Barcelona for two more seasons and then I will leave.”
