Thierry Henry 'set to become shareholder at Italian side Como' and reunite with fellow Arsenal legend Cesc Fabregas | The Sun

THIERRY HENRY is set to become a shareholder in Serie B side Como.

The development comes just days after former team-mate Cesc Fabregas joined the Italian side on a two-year deal.


Fabregas sealed a move to Como after leaving Monaco on a free transfer over the summer, describing his final injury-riddled year with the club as the "worst year of my life."

And as part of his deal in joining Como, he became a shareholder in the club.

Now Henry is set to reunite with the Spaniard once again and join him as a shareholder of the club, as reported by Gianluca Di Marzio.

According to Di Marzio, Henry will travel to Como in the coming days to announce his decision to become a shareholder.

The Serie B side have been building a promising project since 2017.

Como were relegated to Serie D over financial issues ahead of the 2017/18 season but were reborn after being taken over by Indonesian company Djarum Group.

Ex-Chelsea star Dennis Wise was appointed as CEO of the project shortly after, and he has overseen the club's rise back up to Serie B – a league they had not been in since the 2015/16 season.

Last season the Lariani finished 13th in Serie B and will be hoping additions such as Fabregas could help them push for promotion.
