One of Arsenal’s all-time great players, it looks with hindsight like the club got rid of him at just the right time, with Barcelona paying around £19m to bring him to the Nou Camp when he’d already past his peak.

Henry also enjoyed one of Barca’s most famous wins over arch-rivals Real Madrid in recent years, scoring twice in a 6-2 thrashing in a memorable El Clasico match at the Bernabeu that same year.
