Staying or Going?
What’s going on?
Reports are saying that Henry is going to Barcelona for around Â£16 million.
If it is indeed true, then Arsenal have a knack of letting quality players at the wrong time. Last season Henry could have fetched around Â£40 million and when Vieira left, he ended up going for Â£13.7 million when the season before Real Madrid offered Â£23 million.
And if all the reports are to be believed, then I’m just confused about why Wenger would let a 30-goal a season man leave the club.
At least when Vieira left Fabregas was waiting in the wings.
Who can replace Thierry Henry?
Who has been more influential in Arsenal’s successes?
But of course, it is Barcelona doing all the talking so it could be complete rubbish. But with all the media coverage at the moment about the move it doesn’t look good.
Do you believe it’s actually going to happen?
You would have to think Wenger has something up his sleeve if he has decided Henry doesn’t fit in with his plans.
We know players don’t leave unless Wenger has given the go ahead but Â£16 million isn’t worth much in the transfer market these days.
Are you saying Darren Bent is worth the same as Henry?
None of this makes any sense!
When I heard about it I thought this is just the Spanish Media playing games again and I suppose until we get an official word from Arsenal we’ll be kept guessing about whether it’s actually true.
