Henry joining Ronaldinho

Spanish champions Barcelona claim that Arsenal’s French striker Thierry Henry has committed to a ‘verbal agreement’ with the Catalan giants.

Sources within the organization claim that the French international has agreed to sign in the summer in a deal reportedly worth £140,000 a week.

Barcelona are refusing to make an official comment, but the Spanish press are reporting that Henry would come to the Nou Camp for only £10million. FIFA rules, and the fact that Henry is in the last year of his contract with Arsenal, would prevent the north London club from asking for a larger sum.

A club source said: "Signing Henry has always been the club's highest priority because it will have a knock-on effect on the remaining money available to Frank Rijkaard this summer.

"Rijkaard and his coaching staff are already working on a system for next season that will integrate Henry quickly and allow him to adapt as soon as possible to playing alongside Ronaldinho and Samuel Eto'o."

Can't wait to see what magic FC Barcelona display with Ronaldinho, Messi and Henry on the pitch. We're going to have a radically different lineup from last season, which will take some getting used to bother for supporters and opposition alike. First time we'll really be able to tell is FCB-Inter Milan at the Nou Camp at the end of August. Can't wait.
