Chelsea, Newcastle target Henry wants Barca exit

The News of the World says the ex-Arsenal captain has told Barcelona boss Frank Rijkaard he wants to quit Spain at the end of the season. Henry has cited personal problems as the reason he wants to return to England.

The Catalan club have told the 30-year-old they will not stand in his way. A Barca source said : "If we receive a proposal then we will speak to the player. We have not opened the door for Henry, but we have not closed it."

Chelsea would be favourites for his signature but Manchester City and Newcastle would both be interested in signing Henry - even allowing him to commute from a London base.
