Thierry Henry will become the most highly paid football pundit on television when he joins Sky at the start of 2015.

The former Arsenal and Barcelona striker, who retired on Tuesday, will be paid £4million a year, according to the Daily Mail, a figure that will eclipse the reported £1.2m a year that Gary Neville earns the channel.
