We’ve heard Seattle. We’ve heard New York. Now it’s D.C. United’s turn to go on the Thierry Henry rumor wagon. Henry is looking to leave his contract with Spanish giants Barcelona due to a lack of playing time, making his move to Major League Soccer all the more possible.

Reports out of Europe today suggest Henry is catching interest from New York and now D.C. for a possible summer move. D.C. is a new addition to the Henry rumors but let’s face it all MLS clubs are interested in some form or another, there are just a small few that he’ll actually end up with in the end.

D.C. does sound like a logical place for Henry too.

In a way I have to say I like this move for both sides more than even him going to New York. What do you make of D.C.’s chances of grabbing Henry this summer? Hell it seems both need each other here so why not?

  • OK I'll bite – why does this make more sense than New York? I can see how he'd be attracted by DCU's beautiful digs and stellar talent, but what else makes them attractive? [/sarcasm]

  • Hmm, looks like we might have to investigate… Because I can only believe this is complete and utter BS. Of course, MLS teams would love to have a player like Henry. However, that is still a long way from securing his services.

    The “Henry to DC” rumor started back in February. This is just further “proof” that there's more to the rumor.

    It really doesn't add up other than for the fact that DC needs a forward. I would think Raul would be a better fit, especially if they add an experienced midfielder to supply service(Seedorf makes sense, especially with the AC Milan exhibition coming up). It also wouldn't take much to clear the extra cap space necessary, as waiving Allsopp (if he fails to produce) would probably clear the $334K cap space to fit two pro-rated DPs.

  • But is Chang willing to lay out the $$$ necessary for a big-name DP, let alone two? I just can't see it at this point.
