Angelo Henriquez is staying in constant contact with Manchester United’s coaches who are tracking his development on loan at Dinamo Zagreb.
The Chilean striker joined a season long loan and has enjoyed a strong start to his year in Croatia but United are ensuring his progress is monitored.
Henriquez doesn’t feel a loan move away was a backwards step in his career but admits he’d be happy to stay at Dinamo Zagreb after the end of his loan spell.
“I don’t think it was a backwards step in my career (joining Dinamo) but a good chance to play and get experience of European football,” Henriquez said.
“Dinamo is a special challenge for me because I know the club aspires to be the best in Croatia and that will help me achieve my goal.
“I have constant contact with people from Manchester United.
“Not (Louis) van Gaal, but people from Carrington, the coaches. They want to know every detail – from the intensity of training here, diet, life in Zagreb. With that amount of care for a year, I know I’m still being followed by United.”
The biggest problem for Henriquez at United is the sheer amount of attacking talent the squad currently has. With Rooney, Van Persie, Falcao and Wilson all vying for a first-team spot, the Chilean knows he’ll be faced with stiff competition to even get a spot in the squad.
Likely with that in mind, Henriquez has praised Dinamo and insisted he’d love to stay on a permanent deal if it were to happen.
Commenting on rumours he’ll stay in Dinamo for the long term, Henriquez said: “I heard about this idea but I honestly do not know what to say.
“Should I wait for the end of the season and draw the line and see where we are?
“Basically, I would not mind staying in Dinamo because it’s a great club and if things go well I would love to stay here after the expiry of the loan.”
The emergence of Wilson is not good news for Henriquez as it means his future at United has been made even harder and the Chilean could well look at a move elsewhere in order to play regular first team football after this season.
