Barcelona winger Ludovic Giuly believes Barcelona’s Thierry Henry will join the Catalan side this summer.

In January striker Henry, 28, pledged to stay at Arsenal, but since then he has been linked with Barcelona.

Giuly told the News of the World: “We speak on the telephone all the time and we have had a conversation recently. I think he’s coming.

“He will get a great welcome in Barcelona because everybody is excited thinking about him in our shirt.”

Arsenal and Barcelona meet in the Champions League final on 17 May at the Stade de France in Paris.

Giuly added of Henry: “He is one of the world’s top players and can only make our team better.”
