Barcelona ends contract with defender Henrique
Barcelona ended its contract with Henrique Adriano on Saturday,
one year before the agreement with the Brazilian defender official
The Catalan club paid ?8 million (US$12.7 million) to Palmeiras
in 2008 for Henrique. Although the defender signed for five years,
he did not fit into coach Pep Guardiola’s plans for the club.
In the past years, Henrique spent time on loan at Bayer
Leverkusen and Racing Santander before returning to Palmeiras for a
stint last season.
