"It was the winter holiday and I was back in Togo having a kickabout with friends when my phone rang.One of the boys answered it and said, 'Manu, it's Arsene for you'. 'Arsene who?' I said. 'Arsene Wenger', he said. 'Get out of it', I said, and grabbed the phone off him. But then I heard the voice. 'Allo'. F*****g hell. It is Arsene Wenger!"

'Inside Source' says Henry On His Way To Spain

If you have not read it yet, FC Barcelona Blog has claimed that their 'INSIDE SOURCE' has confirmed that the Barcelona board are on the verge of signing Thierry Henry. They went on to say that the club cannot make a decision to sign Henry or Diego Forlan...Yes, the Man Utd failure. They also said that their source said that Henry had verbally agreed on joining the Catalan club. Im here now, to post my view on what FC Barcelona Blog says is FACT, I think is FICTION.

"Thierry Henry and FC Barcelona have already a verbal agreement in place, that after a final decision to leave Arsenal he will join FC Barcelona. This is a fact!" -FC Barcelona Blog
Now I would think that this was a recent decision but as we all know, the original post that Henry had verbally agreed to sign with Barca came out months ago, which was about the same time he said that the Arsenal fans are the reason that he will remain at the club. I would have believed it more if he said this recently, but if he had so called verbally agreed a deal with Barca, wouldnt Wenger being the man that always says that if a player doesnt want to play for the club he cant stop them from leaving... would not have said so many times that he is in talks with Henry. And wouldnt Dein stop saying, we are offering the best deal ever offered to an Arsenal player. Post your thoughts in the comments section and the forums.

"The only opposing party in a potential transfer is inside the Club itself. FC Barcelona's thechnical secretary, Txiki Beguiristain, prefers Diego Forlán from Villareal to Thierry Henry, because he believes Forlán can be another 'Larsson'." -FC Barcelona Blog
I dont know about anyone else but I see this as a 'save some blushes romour'. Just incese they dont get Henry, they can say....thats OK, we were going for Forlan anyway. Again, post your thoughts...
