Henry to Red Bulls? Maybe in 2010

Good ol’ Ives posted this gem yesterday about the possibility of Thierry Henry coming to play in New York for the Red Bulls in the future.

In a recent interview with the New York Times, Henry talked about his love for the city of New York and his desire to play there sometime before he retires.

I always say that one day I can play over there, Henry told Times writer Jack Bell. I would love to.”

So when does he come is the question? Well, probably 2009 or 2010 would be a good bet for starters. Think about the Red Bulls getting Henry to kick off in their new stadium in 2009. That is a marketing dream for the MLS in my opinion. There may be a hefty price to get him there but I wouldn’t be surprised that the Red Bulls or even a second New York club (never know with the expansions in this league) would pay for him come that time.

Its easy to say that Henry is the type of player that the league needs and wants to go after. He is just as marketable as Beckham and will draw in fans just as well.

Sure this is all speculation and rumors for now but it is never a bad time to bring up a rumor of an international star like Henry to the MLS. What do you all make of the possibility of Henry to the MLS in the future?

    I can't see him coming as long as he's still getting called up for the France NT, so I'm guessing after 2010.

    man, I'd love to see Henry in a RB uniform. But yeah, it won't happen while he is still playing for Les Bleus.
