Barcelona coach Pep Guardiola is reported to be looking at Valencia attacking midfielder David Silva as a replacement for Thierry Henry, acccording to AS.

Henry has a year left on his contract and is believed to be heading to the United States to play Major League Soccer after next summer's World Cup in South Africa.

Guardiola is understood to be an admirer of David Silva and the Blaugrana may turn to the 23-year-old to bolster their attack.

Valencia are pondering their options as the look to tackle a massive debt and may be forced to sell some of their best players to restore order to the club's finances. Silva, like striker David Villa, has regularly been linked with a big money move away from the Mestalla and Los Che may find it difficult to resist the approaches of the champions next summer.
