Thierry Henry will only come back to England to re-join Arsenal, that is Arsène Wenger’s ‘gut-feeling’.

The striker left Emirates Stadium just over a year ago to join Barcelona after 370 games and 226 goals in North London. This week he was linked with a transfer to Manchester United, however his former manager feels that move is highly unlikely.

“I don’t believe in that,” said Wenger. “I don’t believe Thierry Henry will come back to England. That is my gut feeling. But I think if he comes back to England then he comes back to Arsenal.”
