Confirmed: Angelo Henriquez leaves United for Dinamo Zagreb

Angelo Henriquez moved to Manchester United in 2012 but never made a first-team appearance and has now turned a prolific loan move to Croatian side Dinamo Zagreb into a permanent transfer.

The 21-year-old scored 20 goals as Dinamo won the league title last season and earned himself a place in Chile’s Copa America winning squad, coming on as a late substitute in the final against Argentina.


Since arriving at Old Trafford as a Sir Alex Ferguson signing, Henriquez enjoyed loan spells at Wigan, Real Zaragoza and then Dinamo.

Robin van Persie could soon join Henriquez on the list of exits from United this summer with Fenerbahce, who announced the signing Nani earlier today, as the club’s attacking options seem to lessen each day. James Wilson is also being linked with a loan move to Hull City.

Who knows, Javier Hernandez might have a future at Manchester United after all.

  1. I can, t understand the reasoning behind the Henriquez transfer as no Utd striker got anywhere near the 20 goals he scored the last season and he has scored wherever he has gone on loan.I also fear we will have another Paul Pogba situation where he will go from strength to strength at anther club

    1. Trevor Fallon: Hi Trevor, thanks for your comment.

      Croatian league is nowhere near the standard of the Premier League, although if English football keeps going the way it is currently there might be an argument against that. Plus, I doubt he’s of Paul Pogba’s calibre, who we all knew would make it a top player before he left United. You could still argue Henriquez deserved a chance.

  2. Scoring 20 for Dinamo in HNL is really nothing special, last term they’ve had 5 scorers in double figures and they usually win the league well before the winter break.

    That said I have to admit I was hoping Angelo would get at least a chance with United, especially after getting decent game time at Copa America winning side.

    Then again, it seems we’re into this Gaalactico thing again.
