Juventus striker David Trezeguet has revealed that he plans to join his former French international teammate Thierry Henry at New York Red Bulls, but he doesn’t plan to leave Italy until next season.

Trezeguet has a year to run on his deal with Juve, but was still linked with a move to a host of clubs this summer, including sides in the MLS.

However, the 32-year-old is now in pre-season training with the Bianconeri, and his agent, Antonio Caliendo, revealed his plans to honour the remainder of his contract to Radio Monte Carlo;

“For the time being he will not move from Juventus because the coach [Luigi Del Neri] needs him so, without a doubt, David will respect his current contract.

We have received several offers and the one the player likes most is that of the New York Red Bulls. There he will meet up with Henry.”

It’s just a shame that the time difference between New York and Turin is five hours and not five years.

    MLS allows a maximum of 3 marquee players that exceed the salary cap. New York already have 2 in Thierry Henry and Juan Pablo Angel, and plan to acquire a third this summer.

    Angel’s contract runs through 2011.

    I suppose it’s possible Trezeguet could take Angel’s spot. But then he will have gone roughly 10 months between league matches (since MLS doesn’t start play until the end of the March normally)

    This is just another case of agents trying to us MLS as leverage to extract a new contract for their client.

    As if Trez is irreplaceable. Let him ef off to NY, two has-been French strikers. MLS would even take a player who’s retired. As long as he was somebody.

    Has been’s? Okay. We’ll take Henry and Trezeguet & you can keep Heskey and Berbatov. Deal?
