Henry mulling New York move

Topics

Barcelona forward Thierry Henry could be set to follow David Beckham and Freddie Ljungberg to the United States next summer, according to reports.

The former Arsenal captain - who scored 174 league goals for the Gunners - overcame a frustrating first season at the Camp Nou by helping them seal an unprecedented treble in 2008/09.

Recent reports have linked the 32-year-old Frenchman with a move to Manchester City at the end of the season, possibly as part of an exchange deal that would see Brazilian attacker Robinho head to Catalunya.

However, according to the Daily Mail, Henry - who has made more than 100 outings for France - is instead mulling a move to the USA after the 2010 World Cup to see out his playing days with New York Red Bulls.

Should the former Monaco and Juventus man seal a switch to the city that never sleeps, he could be paired up front alongside ex-Aston Villa striker Juan Pablo Angel, who has bagged 43 goals in 71 MLS appearances since leaving England in 2007.
