There is bound to be fresh speculation over a move for Tottenham's Dimitar Berbatov, while Karim Benzema, David Villa and Klaas-Jan Huntelaar have also been linked with Old Trafford over the last few months.
Henry's name has just been added to that list despite the 31-year-old's obvious link with Arsenal.
Tellingly, it was an issue Ferguson chose to skirt round rather than reject.
"There is a name every day," he said. "I can't answer the question because I don't have the right answer.
"It is possible I will sign someone this week. We are trying and we are looking at one or two options. Hopefully we will get something done."
