MADRID, Feb 24 (Reuters) Real Madrid president Florentino Perez believes that Arsenal striker Thierry Henry will stay with the London club next season rather than move to Spain.
Asked about Real's reported interest in signing the Frenchman in an interview with radio station Onda Cero, Perez replied ''Arsenal want him to stay and I believe he will continue playing with them.'' Henry, who scored a brilliant individual goal in his side's 1-0 win over Real in the first leg of their Champions League knockout tie, has been linked in newspapers with both Barcelona and Real.
Perez said he was confident his side could reproduce the sort of form they showed when they beat Real Zaragoza 4-0 in the return leg of the King's Cup and turn the tie around when they travel to Highbury on March 8.
''The team will go to London with the same attitude as they had when they played Zaragoza in the Cup. We are going there to win and we can do it, although we know it won't be easy.'' REUTERS SC KP1656
