Barcelona have no intention of pursuing their reported interest in Thierry Henry in the short term.

Barcelona have no intention of pursuing their reported interest in Thierry Henry in the short term.

The Catalan club are satisfied with the players they have at the Nou Camp and do not feel inclined to try to tempt Henry away from Arsenal, according to their vice-president Ferran Soriano.

“There are a lot of rumours in this industry. We are very happy with the players we have,” Soriano told BBC Radio Five Live.

The French striker is admired at Barca, but it seems his services are not coveted at present.

“He is an amazing player. Everybody would like to have Thierry Henry in their team – all the teams in the world,” added Soriano.

“But he has a team and a contract, and we respect that. One day if he is available we would talk – but not now.”
