Our young striker, Angelo Henriquez, has been linked with a loan move to Wigan all week, but now Roberto Matinez has confirmed the rumours.
“Angelo is as good a goalscorer as you will find,” said Martinez. “He scored goals at Universidad de Chile and he is going to score goals here. I am sure he will be an important player for United. We are glad we can work with him and he can use Wigan as Tom Cleverley did and adapt to what is needed in this league.”
United had agreed a deal for Henriquez when he was just 15-years-old which was set to expire in 2014. We hurried the deal through this summer after City approached his club, Universidad de Chile. Once the deal was confirmed, Henriquez claimed it was a dream come true.
