French international hinted he wanted to experience playing in the North American league.
Manchester City defender Gael Clichy admits he is sold on a move to Major League Soccer after a positive chat with New York Red Bulls star Thierry Henry.
Clichy is a former team-mate of Henry’s from their days together at Arsenal and says a flood of positive reviews from the 36-year-old, who joined the Red Bulls from Barcelona in 2010, have amplified his hunger to sample the North American League in the future.
“He says he loves New York and says MLS is getting bigger each year,” Clichy told Goal. “It makes you think that if the opportunity comes, why not try MLS?
“We all want to play as long as possible and the chance to be a part of a new league that is growing bigger and bigger year after year, that’s a great challenge.
“The way he’s talking about it means that he loves it. It makes me want to try it if the possibility comes.”
The 28-year-old has two Premier League winners medals to his name from his time after winning the title with the Gunners and Manchester City and acknowledges that he has no plans to leave the Etihad Stadium for the United States at this current time.
“Nothing is sure, but why not?” the French international said. “If the opportunity comes for any player to play in the U.S., of course I’d take it.
“It’s a nice thing and you can see big players going there and enjoying it because the football is getting better each year.”
