United prospect Henriquez admits desire to sign permanently in Zagreb

Manchester United youngster Angelo Henriquez says that he would love to make his loan move to Dinamo Zagreb a permanent one.

Manchester United youngster Angelo Henriquez admits that he would welcome a move away from Old Trafford to join Dinamo Zagreb.

The striker is currently on loan at the Croatian club and he admits that he has settled in so well that he would be open to making a move on a permanent basis.

"I would not mind staying in Dinamo because it’s a great club and if things go well I would love to stay here after the expiry of the loan," he said to the Daily Record.

So far Henriquez has played five teams for Zagreb, scoring twice in an encouraging start to his career there. 

The striker is still only 20-years-old, but it seems that his chance of making the grade at United may have passed him by.

The Red Devils have a number of attacking options and even the likes of James Wilson have emerged as a brighter prospect than the youngster.

There was a time when United supporters had hoped that Henriquez would be the next hopeful to step-up to their first-team, but those hopes are gone now, after a series of unsuccessful loan moves.

Even so, the Chilean international says that United have kept in contact with him and regularly analysed his performances to date. 

“I have constant contact with people from Manchester United," he said. 

“Not van Gaal, but people from Carrington, the coaches. They want to know every detail. From the intensity of training here, diet, life in Zagreb. With that amount of care for a year, I know I’m still being followed by United.”

Henriquez next game for his new club will come against Celtic tonight in the Europa League and he will be hoping to make an impression back in Britain.
