In a move that could be described as the Summer 2010 Football Transfer Window’s ‘Worst Kept Secret’ Thierry Henry has confirmed his more from F.C Barcelona to New York Red Bulls.
Following on from a disappointing and fragmented World Cup, French forward Thierry Henry is looking to start anew in the MLS with the well established Red Bulls.
Allowing his contract to be terminated early from FC Barcelona meant that Fightin’ Energy Drinks (as no-one calls them) were able to get the former-Arsenal man on a free transfer.
New York Red Bulls will also be hoping that the prospect of seeing a top-level star like Henry will help sell some more tickets at their brand new stadium, The Red Bull Arena, which is definitely not in New Jersey (little in-joke there for our MLS fans).
Henry will, however, have the home comfort of facing old arch-rivals as he is expected to make his d'©but against Tottenham Hotspur in a Pre-Season friendly on July 22nd.
Is this the right move for Henry? Does it seem like a good piece of business for NYRB?
We want to know!
