Gudjohnsen & Henrique Set For Barcelona Exit - Report

The Brazilian defender will spend the season on loan, while Eidur is set for a permanent move...
Barcelona have agreed to loan young centre-half Henrique to Racing Santander for the 2009-10 season, while Eidur Gudjohnsen will join Monaco on a two-year deal - according to Marca.

Henrique signed for the Catalans from Brazilian outfit Palmeiras in 2008 for an initial fee of €8 million and had a successful loan spell at Bundesliga side Bayer Leverkusen last season.

It is understood that the Blaugrana want Henrique to gain more first-team experience, this time in Spain, with a view to building the young defender's confidence.

Gudjohnsen's three-year spell at Camp Nou will come to an end later today when he completes his switch to Monaco. The 31-year-old, who signed for Barcelona from Chelsea, will sign a two-year deal at the Stade Louis II.

He had been linked with a return to London with West Ham United, where he would link up with former Blues team-mate Gianfranco Zola, but has opted for Ligue 1 instead.
