Henrique's contract terminated by Barcelona

Barcelona announced on Friday that the remainder of Brazilian defender Henrique's contract has been terminated.

Henrique initially cost Barcelona $10 million when he joined the club on a five-year deal from Palmeiras in 2008, but he has spent the last four years out on loan.

A one-year stay with German side Bayer Leverkusen followed before Henrique spent two seasons on loan with Racing, where he appeared in 57 league games.

This past season, Henrique returned to former side Palmeiras for a one-year loan spell before the Catalan side decided to release him from the deal.
