Disagreements between Bordeaux and Thierry Henry over the potential manager’s wage and the transfer market are threatening to bring about the end of the Ligue 1 side’s dream of awarding the former French international striker is first major appointment as manager, according to RMC.
Talks are not completely off, but both parties appear to be at an impasse. Future owners American investment fund GACP are not currently willing to offer Henry the €2m a year salary that he is holding out for, nor match the number of new signings that the Frenchman is demanding before the window shuts next week.
Negotiations are however ongoing right now between Joe DaGrosa, the head of the GACP fund, and Thierry Henry’s agent in London.
The Americans had not counted on requiring a Plan B, but have recently opened discussions with Claudio Ranieri, with Antonio Conte’s brother also being approached.
