Henry closer to MLS move?

Barcelona has confirmed it is in talks with New York Red Bulls over a deal that would see Thierry Henry move to MLS after next month's World Cup. Henry, who lost his starting spot at Barcelona last season, could find himself farther down the Barca depth chart with David Villa expected to join Barcelona in the coming weeks.

Henry joined the Spanish champions from Arsenal in 2007. He has played down reports that he has already signed a pre-contract agreement with the Red Bulls, but Barcelona has revealed that talks are underway.

Barcelona vice president Rafael Yuste told a Spanish radio station that the club only needed to “put the finishing touches (to a deal) so that both clubs are happy.” Joan Oliver, Barca’s director general, said that reports Henry would sign for an MLS club "were not completely wrong."

"For the moment, nothing is certain,” Henry said. “I am a Barcelona player and have another year left on my contract. Currently, my only worry is preparing for the World Cup with France. I will have time to reflect on my future later.”
