Manchester United have confirmed that Chilean striker Angelo Henriquez has joined Dinamo Zagreb on a permanent deal after a successful loan spell with the Croatian club. Henriquez, who won the Copa America, spent last term on loan with the club scoring 20  goals in 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 Manchester 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 that United’s front line need 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.
