    SkySport saying he's waiting for "green light" to sign with Barcelona a 3 year deal. Any info on this ?

    I just read the same story on a Spanish website elmundodeportivo.com

    They are quoting www.francefootball.fr

    Apparently they've agreed to personal terms and now it's a question of the clubs agreeing on a fee. Somewhere between 25 and 30M Euros

    Well the story is that Milan are going to bid 40M Euros for Eto'o, but he's insisting that he's staying in Barcelona.

    Doubt it... but I also don't know if after splashing out all that cash United will be looking to drop another 40 million. Liverpool was also sniffing around Eto'o.

    Anyway, I would hope he would stay. We play a lot of different competitions, so having Henry and Eto'o together could work. I would imagine Henry will put pressure on the whole Barca front line, whether someone gets sold or not. Then you have the supposed absence of Ronaldinho from the Nou Camp on Saturday adding fuel to the speculation that he might be leaving after all.

    The media will do and say anything to sell a story...

    Gudjohnsen is so f*cked! Won't even talk about Ezquerro.

    25-30 million EUROs for Henry is a joke. The player has a price tag of at least 30 million pounds. If Arsenal let's him go for that much it'll be an even bigger mistake than selling Vieira to Juventus for so cheap.

    Barca won't even need Eto'o if Henry comes. They'll just need to stick in somene like Gudjonssen there who can get on the end of passes time after time and they will be back to their best if not better. Henry may have had a quite season this year, with all the injuries and World Cup and number of games he has played, but mark my word, when Hery shows up all rested for pre-season whether its at Arsenal or Barcelona, the team will be very glad to have him. If he was ripping England defenses apart, i can imagine what he will be doing in Spain.


    Either way, if he goes to Barca, i doubt that Eto'o will go to United, if indeed he goes at all. Liverpool is much more likely destination for him and there is speculation of Bellamy leaving Anfield.


    This would be a huge loss for Arsenal though, Henry is irreplecable.

    There's no way he's selling for less than 50 million euros.

    Last summer Barça planned this season with Henry, but he changed his mind after the CL final. Since things are not better at Arsenal, I think it's very possible that Henry leaves Arsenal.

    That doesn't mean that Eto'o will leave Barça. Laporta is not going to sell Eto'o unless Eto'o himself asks for a transfer and that's not likely.

    Well, that's the price it says in the article.

    The thing is, Henry's value has come down somewhat this year due to the injuries and his obvious discontent with Arsenal.

    I still agree that 25-30 is low....

    Glad you agree with me on that one. ;)

    Henry could play as the sole striker up top for Barca. You would then just put Messi and Ronaldinho behind him.

    It would look something like this:

    --------------Henry----------------
    Ronaldinho---------------Messi-----
    ----------Deco/Iniesta-------------
    ------Xavi-------Edmilson/Motta----

    Sensational attack!

    Having seen what Forlan and Kanoute have done in La Liga , Henry is going to have a field day.

    His departure would be a shame for the League as a whole, but I think I really want to see this transfer happen :D
