CONFIRMED: United Reveal Striker Signing

Manchester United have confirmed that Chilean striker Angelo Henriquez has joined Dynamo Zagreb on a permanent deal after a succesful loan spell with the Croatian club.

Henriquez, who won the Copa America last night, spent last term on loan with the club scoring 20  goals n 25 appearances as the club did the double.

The 21 year old joined United at the last minute in 2012 from Universidad de Chile, but was loaned out by Sir Alex Ferguson to Wigan who he helped with the 2013 FA Cup, memorably beating Man City in the final.

The following season he joined Real Zaragoza on loan after David Moyes deemed him surplus to requirements and he enjoyed mild success hitting 6 goals for the Spanish side.

After Moyes’ dismissal Louis Van Gaal came into the club but also felt his services would not be required, sending him to Croatia where he has been a hit. Despite this and the fact United’s front line needing a revamp, Van Gaal has sanctioned his transfer confirmed by the club’s website today:

Nine players’ loans away from the club have expired – namely Sam Johnstone, Reece James, Saidy Janko, Guillermo Varela, Jesse Lingard, Nani, Angelo Henriquez, Javier Hernandez and Will Keane. Janko departed permanently on Wednesday for Celtic, while Henriquez has joined loan club Dinamo Zagreb on a permanent basis.

  1. How can a proven goal-scorer like Angelo Henriquez be allowed to leave the club when we are obviously in dire need of his ilk… smh… very disappointed at this transfer!
