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.
