"We definitely want him!" - Manchester United prospect lined up for permanent exit

Dinamo Zagreb have confirmed that they want to sign loan striker Angelo Henriquez on a permanent deal from Manchester United.

With new Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal bringing the likes of Marcos Rojo, Luke Shaw, Daley Blind, Ander Herrera, Angel Di Maria and Radamel Falcao to Old Trafford in a £150m trolley dash, players had to leave too. Nemanja Vidic and Rio Ferdinand both left at the end of their contracts, whilst Danny Welbeck, Shinji Kagawa and Alexander Buttner all left permanently after finding first team football hard to come by.

Yet some players found it harder to find buyers, and were subsequently loaned out to either prove that they were worth a permanent deal, or to impress other potential suitors. This situation was certainly the case with the likes of Tom Cleverley, Nani, Wilfried Zaha and Javier Hernandez, with van Gaal overhauling his squad over the summer.

Another player who was farmed out was Chilean striker Angelo Henriquez. The 20-year-old joined United back in 2012 having hit 15 goals in just 28 games for Universidad de Chile in his homeland, but has yet to even play one competitive game for the Red Devils, spending time on loan at Wigan Athletic and Real Zaragoza.

And it seems that van Gaal wasn't a huge fan of his upon arriving at United, as he agreed to let Henriquez go out on loan for the season again, this time to Croatia with Dinamo Zagreb. Since moving there, Henriquez seven goals in ten games in all competitions in an impressive start to life under Zoran Mamic - and now, Dinamo executive director Zdravko Mamic has admitted that the club are interested in striking a permanent deal for the forward.

"Yes, we definitely want to buy Angelo Henriquez from Manchester United! Dinamo’s attack will soon be lead by players from Manchester United (Henriquez) and Liverpool!," said Mamic, referring to their recent capture of former Liverpool striker Armin Hodzic.
