Wenger - City fancied Henry

28 March 2009 01:17
Arsene Wenger has claimed Manchester City were interested in signing Barcelona striker Thierry Henry last summer. City have been linked with the Frenchman in the past, and recent reports have suggested they could be set to bid for his services at the end of this season. Henry's future at Camp Nou has been uncertain since he joined them from Arsenal in 2007, however of late his form has improved and he looks likely to remain at Barca. Wenger, who managed Henry for eight years at Arsenal, claims City were keen on the striker, but doubts if he would be interested in a return to the Premier League. Wenger said in The Times: "I knew Man City were interested in getting him but he rightly decided to stay at Barcelona. "What will he do next season? I'm not sure. I'm not convinced he wants to come back to England but he's free to decide what he wants."
