ArseneWenger has reportedly made up his mind and will indeed offer Arsenal legend Thierry Henry the chance to re-join the Gunners in a stunning January loan move.
It looked like the 34-year-old’s career at the highest level and in the spotlight was at an end when he retired from international duty with France in the summer of 2010 and moved to MLS, joining the New York Red Bulls from Barcelona.
Now, a temporary marriage of convenience could boost the morale of Arsenal fans with a dream return, while also solving a problem for Wenger, who is already short on quality backup players and will lose squad members to the African Cup of Nations.
You know you’re already a club legend when there is a statue of you outside the stadium and Henry is one of the Premier League’s greats after scoring 226 in eight stunning years with Arsenal.
If Henry does elect to return to the club where he enjoyed so many past glories, he would not be the first big-name player to make such a comeback.
