Ronaldinho, Deco, Samuel Eto'o, Gianluca Zambrotta, Lilian Thuram, Xavi, Eidur Gudjohnsen and now Thierry Henry are all in contention for the match against Dundee United this week.
Thierry Henry will definitely be playing some part in the matches against Dundee United and Hearts, according to Barcelona manager Frank Rijkaard.
Henry will be part of the Barcelona squad which arrives in Saint Andrews on Monday for their Scottish pre-season tour, which will include exhibition matches against Dundee United and Hearts.
During the week, Rijkaard ruled out the possibility of Henry making his starting debut for Barcelona, following his £16.1 million pound move from Arsenal during the summer.
However, despite struggling with injury for most of last season, Henry managed to survive his first Barca training stint without incident and will play "some minutes" during either or both of the friendly matches this week.
According to Frank Rijkaard, Henry is "physically fine and free of injury" and will be considered along with the rest of the star-studded Catalan side, for Thursday nights match at Tannadice.
The only big name definaley missing from the Barca squad will be Spaniard Carlos Puyol, who misses both matches with a cruciate injury.
