Ángelo Henríquez gone for good?

New, comments

According to the Croatian press, another young prospect has left Old Trafford.

To Croatia, where Manchester United's young Chilean striker Ángelo Henríquez has been plying his trade on loan with Dinamo Zagreb. Quite well, too: he has scored ten goals in fifteen games, and in doing so has apparently secured himself a permanent move.

At least, we think so. Dinamo coach Zoran Mamic has been speaking to Prensa Futbol, and we in turn have been speaking to our regular interpreter, Mr G. Translate. Here's what he thinks Mamic said:

We brought right to try for a million euros. We have already signed a contract with him for the summer. Since there is no doubt it is ours and history is resolved.

"History is resolved." Blimey.

Anyway, the Manchester Evening News, who we're sure have much better translators than we do, have also called it. A million euros amounts to £780,000, which represents something of a loss on the transfer; he moved for a fee that could have risen to around £4m. Assuming this works out, then he leaves without having made a senior appearance for the club. Though he did win the FA Cup while on loan with Wigan, which means he's got one more winner's medal than Wayne Rooney. Funny old game.
