Dinamo Zagreb boss Zoran Mamic has claimed that Manchester United loanee Angelo Henriquez will be staying with the Croatian side beyond his season-long loan deal.
The 20-year-old Chilean star is currently spending the 2014/15 campaign at the Stadion Maksimir after failing to make a serious impact with the Red Devils.
Even though Henriquez struggled at Old Trafford, he’s notched an impressive seven goals for Dinamo this term, impressing the club’s followers.
And with the Modri having been suitably wowed by the youngster, Mamic has revealed that they’ve used the clause, worth around £1.16m, to ensure that he stays with them at the end of the season:
“Taking Henriquez depends on us, not on Manchester United,” he told HRSport. “They can buy him, if they buy him from us, but that won’t be the case.
“We got him with the right of first refusal — he cost us 1.5 million euros. We already signed the contract with him [beginning] from the summer. There’s no dilemma any more: he’s ours and that’s final.”
Henriquez was signed by Sir Alex Ferguson in 2012 from Chilean side Universidad de Chile, but failed to make a single competitive outing for the Premier League bit-hitters.
His only goal in the English top flight came during a loan spell with Wigan in 2013, the same season the Latics won the FA Cup.
