Arsenal are SO CLOSE to signing the most important signing of the summer, no we aren’t signing Ronaldinho….who needs him when we are perhaps hours away from Henry signing a new four year deal to commit his future to our club! That cheered me up!
He has his own column in the sun newspaper and this is what he had to say:
Henry said: “I hope to stay as long as I can keep running. I couldn’t leave the fans.
“They’re like family.
“I love Barcelona, but on Wednesday Arsenal showed they had heart.
“I hope to finalise details today.”
This is great news for all of us fans who now have even more hope of us bouncing back quickly after our heroic defeat on Wednesday night, as I predicted swiftly after the match, I couldn’t see him leaving after the way our boys played with all that heart. Especially to leave and go to Barcelona would have been the nail in the coffin but this is fantastic news!
Also just to add Pires has said that he has “3 offers” including Villarreal and the other assuming to be Arsenal, don’t know about the third…but he still isn’t leaving yet and is still hoping to grab a two year contract with us, I have a sneaky feeling he might want to stay now especially after hearing that his Va Va Voom buddy wants to be here until he can still run….
More news when it comes in, but I expect Henry to finalise his contract today! Who ever said footballers are money orientated…hmmm….
