Gunners Boss Wenger Dismisses Henry To United Rumours

Arsène Wenger has dismissed rumours linking former striker and skipper Thierry Henry to Manchester United by revealing the only club he’d join in England is Arsenal.

While Tottenham striker Dimitar Berbatov has long been linked with a move to Old Trafford, the £30m asking price has so far put off would-be suitors and, according to the Mail on Sunday, Sir Alex Ferguson has turned his attentions towards ex Emirates legend Henry.

Wenger though, believes differently, he told Arsenal.com that if 31-year-old Henry was to come back to England, then the only club he comes back to Arsenal.

“I don’t believe in that,” said Wenger. “I don’t believe Thierry Henry will come back to England. That is my gut feeling. But I think if he comes back to England then he comes back to Arsenal.”

Henry has struggled to settle at Barca, being deployed mainly on the wing to accommodate Samuel Eto’o and Lionel Messi.

However, he still finished top scorer with 19 goals, and Ferguson reportedly believes he has lost none of his attacking threat.

Im hoping for us to win 2-0 tonight as both of our best strikers are starting and we have Bendtner and Vela on the bench and Walcott on the wings. If we get a couple of away goals or even 1 away goal that could make the 2nd leg much more comfortable

I hope so mate, I think our Defence today actually might be quite Solid cos Djourou looked quite solid last time. So it will be interesting if can click with Gallas same way senderos did

Djourou and Senderos were suspect against Sevilla in defence. Hopefully Gallas and Djourou can create a solid partnership and stop Twente's quick forward from breaking through.

Agreed, I think after Barca he might go another spanished side like Villarreal or maybe even back to Monaco. Guys totally of subject what do you think of the score tonight? I dont know much bout F.C. Twente but I doubt its going to be a walk in the park by any means. Predictions?

Henry was never going to Man U. It was just a smokescreen

I agree, I don't think a move was ever going to happen, Henry has such a good relationship with the Arsenal fans it would be very strange if he opted to join United.

When Wenger means return to Arsenal I'm sure he means as some kind of coach, before 50 thousand people scream why would we buy a striker that old.
