12 goals in 10 games: Manchester United loanee Henriquez is on fire

Angelo Henriquez’s outstanding form in Croatia continued with a four goal cameo, even after coming on only in the 90th minute.

Chilean international Angelo Henriquez may be up against substantial competition for places at Old Trafford, but he is proving while out on-loan that he can score at a frightening rate; a rate Louis van Gaal will struggle to ignore.

The 20-year-old gave his hottest performance yet on Wednesday, astonishingly scoring four goals after being brought on in the 90th minute as a substitute.

Henriquez’s loan club, Dinamo Zagreb, were close to crashing out the Croatian Cup before the Chilean popped up with a 90th minute equaliser sending the game into extra-time. While in extra-time, the young United loanee bagged another three and ensured the Croatian capital-based side wouldn’t be on the end of a cup upset.

Time of goals: 1.47.15 – 2.05.0 – 2.07.45 and 2.20.55

It has been revealed that Dinamo Zagreb have a written agreement with Manchester United to sign the explosive striker at the end of his loan spell, but Louis van Gaal may have second thoughts if he keeps scoring at his current rate.

The four goals in the cup boost his goal rate to a staggering 12 goals in his last 10 games, and 13 goals in his last 13 games.

Louis van Gaal reportedly blocked the Chilean’s proposed move back to Universidad de Chile in the summer and may yet have hope for him to make a future at Old Trafford.

If he can keep scoring at the rate of a goal a game then Van Gaal will be given an even bigger headache regarding his attacking selection than he does now next season.
