News that Thierry Henry is leaving New York Red Bulls has prompted speculation he may be looking at a guest stint in the A-League, and online bookmaker believes Melbourne would be the most likely destination for the 37 year old superstar.

Following the all too brief cameo from David Villa, Melbourne City is the favourite to secure Henry’s services at $3.00 but cross-town rival Melbourne Victory would also appear in the hunt at $5.00.

If Dwight Yorke gets in his ear, Sydney FC might be an ideal stopover for the former France and Arsenal striker ($5.50), however Wellington might be a bit too windy for Thierry at $34.

“It’s no longer a huge surprise when a superstar comes to the A-League but Henry would rival any marquee player the competition has ever seen. Melbourne City is the new glamour club, and desperately needs some class to get their season back on track,” said’s Christian Jantzen.
