French soccer superstar Thierry Henry, done with a disappointing season with FC Barcelona, has signed with the New York Red Bulls of U.S. Major League Soccer, according to numerous media sources.

The 32-year-old winger will represent France at the World Cup next month before coming to America to continue his career. He was vilified internationally for his hand ball that led to France knocking out Ireland in World Cup qualification.

Henry holds the record for most goals on the French national team with 51. He has played on winning World Cup and European Championship teams. However, he has scored only four goals all season with FC Barcelona.

Henry has a year remaining on his contract with Barcelona. No details of his contract with the Red Bulls have been released.

Henry became a super star with Arsenal of the English Premier League. A protege of Arsene Wenger, Henry became Arsenal's all-time leading scorer.
