Experienced attacker Thierry Henry could be on his way out of reigning Spanish champions Barcelona as the club's president, Joan Laporta, has revealed that the French international will be allowed to move on.

Henry joined Barcelona from Arsenal in the summer of 2007, but the 32-year-old has never really been able to reproduce his Arsenal form with the Catalans. He has even lost his spot in the starting XI this term.

"He still has a one-year contract with us, but after a disappointing year I do not know what he will do," Laporta was quoted as saying in an interview with Sport.

"In Barcelona we respect contracts, but he probably has not done as well as he wanted. Therefore, I say that he may go away in the summer transfer window if that's what he wants."

The attacker is continually being linked with a move to the USA, with New York Red Bulls supposedly sitting in pole position to secure the services of Henry this summer.---------------------------------------------------------
