Thierry Henry linked with return to Europe, and not with Arsenal

Thierry Henry is linked with a return to former club Monaco.

Arsenal legend Thierry Henry has been linked with a return to Europe, to another of his former clubs.

He is approaching a point where he will make a decision on his future, with MLS side New York Red Bulls resigned to the possibility of losing him.

Talksport report that Henry is a potential target for Monaco, where he first made his name in the late 90s.

Former Liverpool boss Gerard Houllier, head of football at the Red Bulls, told the station:

"Thierry has not decided to end his career. We would love to keep him but it will also depend on him.

"He never seems to get old and continues to score goals. Could he play again in Ligue 1? Absolutely, no problems."

At 37, the Frenchman has still got 'it'. He has scored 10 goals and provided 10 assists in MLS in 28 games this season.

Returning to Ligue 1 for a last hurrah would see him follow in the footsteps of David Beckham, who left LA Galaxy for PSG.

At Monaco, Henry could yet feature in the Champions League knockout stages next year, with the club sitting second in their group after two games.

A potential return to Arsenal in the knockout stages? Now that would be an unmissable event for any Gooner. 

An alternate scenario is that Henry does decide to call time on his career, and take up a coaching role in North London, as he has previously indicated he wants to do.
