Arsenal’s deal with MLS side NY Red Bulls for former glory Thierry Henry has now hit a snag after the two teams could not yet agree on the specific date when the star striker must return to America and leave the Gunners once again.
Henry is due to stay with the Gunners for 2 months time and then return to America, but the two clubs don’t seem to agree on the exact day when the star should arrive in New York.
Arsenal’s manager Arsene Wenger was hoping the striker could be fit in time for the cup match against Leeds United from Monday, but it seems that this set-back may mean Wenger will be without Henry for the game. The French boss wanted to give him a run in an easy match at first to help him get accustomed again with the speed and style of Premiership football.
The problem with the date is that Red Bulls want him back on the 20th of February, while Wenger wants to be able to keep the player until the 26th of February so he could be available for the match against the Spurs.
Regardless of how much the legend is going to be back for, Wenger should get his head out of the closet and look out there for a striker who could help Arsenal throughout the season because this isn’t a solution at all.
