Nike footwear wearing footballer Thierry Henry could be set for a move to the US, reports have suggested.

The Mirror has reported that Henry's representatives have held meetings with Barcelona sporting director Txiki Begiristain and the club is prepared to allow the forward to leave the Camp Nou side before his contract expires.

Henry has previously suggested he would like to live in New York and play in the MLS, meaning that a move to the New York Red Bulls could be on the cards.

Nike may be pleased to see such a move as it could attract more US fans to the sport and the brand, something that rivals Adidas may already be benefiting from with David Beckham at LA Galaxy.

Men may wish to emulate the off-the-pitch fashion of the stylish French footballer by sporting a pair of Nike trainers and teaming it with other apparel from the brand.
