Henry leaving door open for future MLS move

Asked about the rumours linking him with a move to the Major League Soccer, Barcelona forward and French international Thierry Henry (31) left the door open for the future at a press conference ahead of Wednesday friendly against Seattle Sounders:

"For now, I'm just happy to be here with Barcelona. I'm enjoying all this and we'll see after that."

Seattle Sounders general manager Adrian Hanauer meanwhile said that Seattle's presumed interest in Henry (read more here) was never there while the team was considering signing a designated player which ended up being Ljungberg: "I've always said he's one of my favourite players in the world, and who wouldn't want him on their team. But that's about as much to it as there is."

MLS commissioner Don Garber said at the same press conference that a future move would be welcomed: "The league has no interest in talking to Henry while he is under contract to Barcelona, but he would really be a guy that would help grow the sport here. And at the right time, when he's ready and we can find the right place for him, I think he would be a great signing for us."

This year he's ours next year take him he'll be to old (33) and to not lose him for free the summer after.

We won't get any money for him even next year. His wages are probably too high, so we will be happy to see him go on a free to MLS.

I do think he will do a great season for us tbh. He seems sharp and very motivated and he still has lots of pace.

That would be the ideal thing, barca nike. But I'm not sure he'll be willing to drop the fee he's getting. If we could get 10 millions for him next summer, that would be perfect, but I fear we might lose him for free in 2011.

I really think we should sign Robinho or Arshavin IF Henry leaves us!!!

We chose Hleb instead of Arshavin. Arshavin is unavailable now.
