In a move that makes his arrival to MLS even more likely, French striker Thierry Henry has reached an agreement with his current club Barcelona that allows him to part ways with the Spanish side.
According to Sky Sports, the 32-year-old has agreed part ways with the club he joined from Arsenal in 2007. Henry had fallen out of favor with Barcelona coach Pep Guardiola earlier this year, not to mention the club adding David Villa already this summer.
This development is one of the last obstacles to fall to make Henry's long-rumored move to the New York Red Bulls a reality, as he can move without compensation. Henry is coming off France's miserable World Cup performance, making two substitute appearances as Les Bleus crashed out in the group stages without winning a game.
