Pointing the way home: Henry could be heading back to France

Thierry Henry could be tempted by a final fling in France before heading to the United States for a career-ending pay day.

The Barcelona striker has been linked with Marseille and his brother Willy admits it would be a dream to see the 32-year-old back in Ligue 1.

Henry is expected to leave the Nou Camp this summer after falling down the pecking order in Pep Guardiola's side and the New York Red Bulls hope to take him to Major League Soccer.

West Ham are also keen to tempt the Arsenal legend back to England.

However, Willy is trying to persuade him home, even if he's not even confident that his brother will be released from the final year of his current contract.

'I hope he will come to Marseille,' said Willy. 'It is my strongest desire. He is still at Barcelona. I told him every day he must go to Marseille.

'If (head coach) Didier Deschamps calls him, it will perhaps tip the balance.

'When he (Henry) has finished his career in Europe he will leave for the United States. Maybe it will be this year or next year.

'Everything will depend on his form right now. Today, he is motivated for the World Cup.'
