Premier League clubs circling around Henry

British tabloid The Daily Star claims that Barcelona has put forward Thierry Henry (30) up for sale. A Barcelona source is quoted saying: "We have not opened the door for Henry and we have not closed it. If we receive a proposition then we will speak to the player." Premier League clubs Newcastle United, Tottenham Hotspur, Manchester City and West Ham United would all consider to make a 20 million euro° bid for the French international, whose contract expires in 2012.

Newcastle manager Kevin Keegan, who is convinced he can attract big names to his club, said yesterday in an interview with BBC local radio station Radio Newcastle that Henry could be Newcastle's dream transfer in the summer: "I would like to fetch Thierry Henry back to England. He's the best player I've seen in the Premiership. When you're pitch-side, what I've seen him do to good players has been incredible."

Meanwhile, Catalan sports paper Sport claims that Chelsea, who are aware that the Frenchman does not feel comfortable playing and living in Barcelona and is missing his daughter Téa who is living with Henry's former wife Claire Merry in London, has been contacting with Henry's entourage. Before the club makes a formal offer to Barcelona, Chelsea wants to sound Henry out on his plans for the future and has proposed him to think about a summer return to London and the Premier League.

BIg mistake to let Henry go. His contribution has been massive, even when he is not scoring he is assisting. Premiership leave Henry alone he's ours. Same as Larsson, Barca should not have let him leave, they two are big game players.
