Henry exits Arsenal joining Barcelona
Thierry Henry has ended months of speculation and finally agreed to join Barcelona for a sum of 24 million euros. “Arsenal Football Club can confirm that it has reached an agreement with Barcelona for the transfer of Thierry Henry. The deal is subject to a medical and the completion of formalities,” the club said on its official website. Henry, who turned down a move to Barca after the London club lost to Frank Rijkaard’s men in the 2006 Champions League final, also added that Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger’s failure to sign a contract extension had influenced his decision. For a player of his quality I think its better for him to leave Arsenal who played really bad in the past season. With all the young and inexperienced young players in Arsenal especially Fabregas, I hope without Arsene Wenger and Henry, one day they realized that Chelsea is a better side team than they are. So please Fabregas just shut your mouth if you lose another game with Chelsea. I’m optimistic in the future that he will leave Arsenal too.
