Barcelona ace Thierry Henry says he has no intention of returning to England despite admitting his form has been affected by family problems.
Much has been made of Henry’s struggles since his transfer to the Nou Camp from Arsenal.
The 30-year-old admitted last week that any dip in performance was because he was “not happy” at not seeing his two-year-old daughter as often as he would like following his divorce last year.
This news led to reports in the Spanish and British media that Manchester City were preparing a bid to bring the France star back to the Premier League.
But speaking in Barcelona daily Sport on Tuesday Henry simply said a return to England “is not a possibility”.
Instead Henry preferred to concentrate on his future in La Liga.
He said: “Before I was playing with an injury and it wasn’t easy. I don’t know if it was the best thing to do but I wanted to play.
“Now I’m playing without pain, but there are always some problems.”
He added: “We’re in the quarter-final of the Champions League, a step away from the Copa del Rey final and in a good place in the league, although it could be better.
“It’s certainly nothing to be crying about.”
