Angelo Henriquez caps off prolific season with Dinamo Zagreb as champions

We’ve been following Angelo Henriquez’s progress closely over the last couple of years and he has certainly grown as a player.

His loan spell at Real Zaragoza last season was mixed. While there were purple patches of goalscoring form, injuries marred his overall progress and it ended up being an indifferent time for him in Spain.

However, this season at Dinamo Zagreb couldn’t really have gone much better for the 21-year-old Chilean striker. He scored a phenomenal 30 goals in 25 starts for the club and that return helped the Croatian side win the league.

Although the level of football is poor out there, it’s still a measure of a good finisher that he can take advantage of lesser opposition and make the most of it, so well done to him.

Campeones una vez más!! Bravo Dinamo!! ??⚽?

The latest update with regards to his Man United future isn’t good as he himself has said he is going to leave the club but it begs the question – are United doing the right thing in letting him go?

His loan deal at Zagreb included a buy option which it looks like they have taken but if United really wanted to keep him, they could easily come over the top and keep the Chilean striker at the club.

When Sir Alex Ferguson signed Henriquez a year earlier than planned, it was to make sure no other club came in and got him first. The scouts saw great potential in him and swooped to make sure he joined United.

Now, having spent a few seasons out on loan, he has shown how prolific he can be in front of goal and with United’s attack looking so limp at the moment, can Louis van Gaal really afford to let Henriquez go without even giving him an opportunity on the pre-season tour?
