Report says Henry wants to stay with Barca

Full article here.


Less likely is a move to the MLS with both LA Galaxy and the Seattle Sounders being linked with a potential transfer. The Galaxy have already succeeded in prising one European star to the MLS in the shape of David Beckham, whilst the Sounders are a new franchise, who would love the coup of signing Henry. However, the chances of Henry electing to move to the States, a potential death knell of his international career, seem minimal.

However, in the interview with Le Parisien Henry insists he has no intention of moving, quashing any transfer rumours in the process stating that "I don't want to leave, I still have three years of my contract left and I will continue here next year"

If there are to be any changes for Henry they will happen after Euro 2008. After spending most of the season playing from the left wing, Henry assured French fans, expecting him to fulfil centre forward duties at the tournament: "Don't worry! With Les Bleus (the French national team) we'll have a bit of time before the start of the Euros. I will work on re-finding my form in the centre but it should be fine.”
