Barca ready to release Henry?

Thierry Henry could be set to return the Premier League, with Barcelona seemingly happy to sell him regardless of his improved form this season according to The Sun.

Despite boasting a reasonable return of 24 goals in his 48 games for Barcelona, it is thought that the club is willing to cash in on him this summer, recouping some of the £16m they paid Arsenal for his services in 2007.

Although boss Pep Guardiola is a fan of the France international, reports in Spain claim Henry will be allowed to leave if the Catalans can land either Bayern Munich's Franck Ribery or Bordeaux's Yoann Gourcuff.

Henry's potential availability will alert a host of English clubs, including Manchester City, who were linked with him last year, and Aston Villa who are also thought to be interested in the player.

While many speculated that he was simply past his best, Henry's relative lack of form could easily be attributed to difficulties in adapting to a new country, as well as personal problems arising from a messy divorce and custody issues over his infant daughter. In addition, he arrived at Barca to find the team in disarray, and still managed to end the season as top scorer.

Nonetheless, if the club were able to offload him for a fee in the region of £12m, they would doubtless consider it to be a good piece of business for a player now 31 years old.
