Henrique joined Barcelona hoping to make an impact but unfortunately has been loaned out since his arrival in 2008. Having joined Barca in the summer of 08, Henrique failed to make an impression at Nou Camp and was loaned out to Bundesliga club, Bayer Leverkusen, where he eventually found his way back to Barcelona but unfortunately only to be loaned out again.
With Henrique enjoying 22 matches at his stay with Racing Santander, he ended his campaign with a injury in his left knee. It was definitely a tough break for the young 23-year old who hopes to make the Barcelona squad one day but will have another chance to prove himself as he once again will be loaned out to another team who will give him minutes on the field.
Having to play for Rancing Santander for another year, Henrique has a chance to prove himself to Barcelona when both sides meet on August 29th. Although the chances of Henrique being called to the first team squad at Barcelona is unlikely to happen anytime soon, the young Brazilian defender can show Pep Guardiola that he will be the future of the club.
Think Henrique has a chance at making the starting squad at Barcelona or are they better off selling the Brazilian defender? Feel free to share your thoughts in the comments section below.
