'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Henry Offered A Four Year Deal

Arsene Wenger revealed that record breaking striker, Thierry Henry, has been offered a four year deal.

The contract would see him become Arsenal's highest ever earner, and also, if he isn't already, the greatest player ever to wear the famous red and white shirt.

'We have offered him a four-year contract,' Wenger told France Football.

'He is an historic player at the club and one of the best in the world.

'He would become the biggest earner at Arsenal, but I don't question that.

'I believe he will stay - that is my heart-felt opinion.'

'I want to build the team again and finish the job by winning the Champions League and Henry would get more satisfaction in doing that at this club than anywhere else,'

Four years seems a sensible offer, given that the last year of any contract is pretty much pointless, as if players don't sign by then things just get daft. Whether he wiill sign it, though, I'm not too sure.

That will take him to 33 years of age, and the stage in his career when he will be offered one year rolling contract. This will be Thierry's last big offer, so I don't blame him for taking his time.

Good point. I didn't think of it as Thierry's last 'real' contract - which of course it would be.

I can see him playing as long as DB10, he doesnt only rely on pace, he has a great footballing mind too!

Lets hope he signs, it will be just what the doctor ordered before we move to our new stadium
