West Ham United Makes $11 Million Bid for Thierry Henry, Sun Reports
West Ham United has offered Barcelona striker Thierry Henry a two-year contract worth more than 7.5 million pounds ($11 million), the Sun reported.
Co-owner David Sullivan is prepared to give Henry, 32, about 75,000 pounds per week, making him the highest-paid player in the east London club’s history, the Sun said.
“Our club is in debt but a striker of his quality and standing would make it a great deal,” the Sun quoted Sullivan as saying. “And it’s a serious offer because Henry could walk into almost any Premier League side.”
Henry has been unable to win a regular starting place at Barcelona since joining from Arsenal in 2007. He’s recently been linked with a move to the New York Red Bulls of Major League Soccer.
