thumbnail Hello,

Former Arsenal striking legend Thierry Henry is set to leave Barcelona this summer and will be unveiled on Thursday by MLS side New York Red Bulls.

According to the News of the World, the Red Bulls have confirmed they intend to hold a press conference to announce a new signing and it will almost certainly be French international.

Henry was forced to play a bit-part role at Barcelona last year due to the fine form of Lionel Messi and the emergence of Spanish youngster Pedro.

The 32-year-old also only appeared twice in the ill-fated French World Cup 2010 campaign, as they emerged from South Africa with just one point from three games and were eliminated at the group stage.

Despite the slim possibility of returning to the Premier League this summer with West Ham United, Henry is now thought to be heading Stateside where he will pair up with former Aston Villa striker Juan Pablo Angel in the Red Bulls' attack.

Although having disappointed during his spell in La Liga, Henry remains a Gunner's legend after 174 goals in 254 games between 1999 and 2007.
