Manchester United loanee Angelo Henriquez has confirmed he wishes to stay at Dinamo Zagreb on a permanent basis.

Henriquez, 20, joined the Croatian club on a season-long loan in the summer of 2014 and has enjoyed a prolific campaign, netting 10 league goals and a further eight in domestic competition and in Europe.

Late in 2014, Dinamo manager Zoran Mamic insisted the club had the option to purchase the Chilean starlet outright for a fee of just €1.5m (£1.1m, $1.6m).

Henriquez has since confirmed via the club's official website that he wishes to remain in Zagreb once his loan deal expires in the summer, having fallen for the city and the football club.

His statement read: "My loan from Manchester United lasts until the end of the season and I know that Dinamo want to purchase my contract which means that the club are satisfied with me and therefore I am happy.

"I feel great on and off the pitch and I want to stay here. People here have accepted me, I have gained many friends, and Zagreb is a lovely city and wherever I go I feel the fans are happy with me which is what is important to me."

In November 2014, Henriquez's father told Chilean newspaper La Tercera his son wished to return to Old Trafford in order to fight for a place in manager Louis van Gaal's side. But the striker's latest comments suggest his permanent move to the Croatian club is ready to be confirmed.

Henriquez left Universidad de Chile to join United in 2012 but failed to make a first-team appearance for the club, having had spells out on loan at Wigan Athletic and Real Zaragoza.

During a cup clash against Opatija in October 2014, the Chilean came off the bench to score four goals inside 13 minutes to secure the win for his side.
