MLS PLAYER SIGNINGS: West Ham Bid Big Money for Thierry Henry


Red Bull New York may want to delay the printing of all those Thierry Henry jersey’s they have planned. Premier League side West Ham United have put forward a huge bid in an attempt to lure the French International to London instead of New York.

“I’ve made an offer which would make him the highest-paid player in the club’s history. And it’s a serious offer because Henry could walk into almost any Premier League side.” Hammers joint chairman David Sullivan told English paper The Sun. “We’re trying to assemble a more prolific strike-force at West Ham and I’d love to have Henry here.”

The sheer magnitude of the offer from cash strapped West Ham, estimated to earn Henry over $100,000 a week, did not seem to phase Sullivan.

“Our club is in debt but a striker of his quality and standing would make it a great deal.”

Henry is reported to have signed a Pre-Contract with Major League Soccer.
