Arsenal legend Henry discussed at Barcelona

Arsenal legend Thierry Henry is being discussed at Barcelona.

The former Barcelona forward took charge of MLS side Montreal Impact on an initial two-year deal in November.

But Henry is being considered at the Nou Camp if current manager Ernesto Valverde departs, says Sport.

Valverde's contract at the Catalan giants is set to expire in June, although there is the option to renew it for another year.

Henry's coaching career began just three years ago as Roberto Martinez's assistant at the Belgium national team and he lasted just 104 days in his first managerial role at Monaco.

However his lack of experience does not reportedly concern Barcelona as he knows 'the Barca way' having played for them for three years.
