Henry to Seattle on $150,000 a Week?

Barcelona and France superstar, Thierry Henry, could be the next David Beckham as far as the MLS is concerned. According to that reputable rag, The Sun, Britain's top-selling daily, Henry will earn a staggering $150,000 a week, far more than most Rapids players earn in a year, when he becomes the face of new team, Seattle, next year. Everything that is written in The Sun must be taken with a huge pinch of salt but there's no doubting Seattle's ambition. For example, despite there being no team until next year, their ground is being used for an international game between China and Mexico later this month. It's interesting, this trend of staging international games in neutral countries. In the last round of international fixtures, Brazil played Sweden at The Emirates while Mexico played Ghana at Fulham's Craven Cottage. Anyway, here's the link to the Henry story.
