Barcelona sign Thierry Henry

Former Arsenal striker Thierry Henry has completed his move from Arsenal to Barcelona. The deal is said to be worth 24 MLN euros. The 29-year-old French striker passed a medical on Monday, signing a four-year deal with the Spanish club.

Barcelona's team doctor pronounced Henry free of injury, saying there were no medical reasons stopping him from joining the club.  Henry's last season with Arsenal was cut short because of hamstring, foot and back problems.


Thierry joins Barca after eight years with the Gunners, and will retain the number 14 he wore with Arsenal in the English Premiership.
