Henriquez joins biggest club in the world

Manchester United have confirmed the signing of 18-year-old Angelo Henriquez. The Chile international joins United from Universidad de Chile for an undisclosed fee after negotiating with the club throughout the summer.

The transfer was delayed because United had to wait patiently for the striker’s work permit and visa the fall through. An agreement cannot be met until these documentations are finalised.

“I am thrilled to be joining the biggest club in the world. Manchester United is a great team and has a great manager,” he said. “To be able to be part of that is a huge honour and I can’t wait to get started. I hope I can be part of many successful years with United.”

If you’re a fan of statistics, it is worth looking at Henriquez’ records for Universidad de Chile where he scored 11 goals in 17 league appearances. The player describes himself best as a striker. He is pacey, strong as an ox, likes to play it simple and has a real eye for goal.

Sir Alex Ferguson, who has watched Henriquez develop throughout his youth, believes the player has the potential to become a star for the Premier League club.

“Angelo has made a tremendous impact on the game in his short career so far,” said Ferguson. “His pace is a great asset and he reads the game really well for someone of such a young age. We have a proud record of developing young talent and Angelo fits the profile of a United player – skilful, attacking and someone who plays the game with real flair.”

Jonas Giæver, a Stretty News contributor, wrote the tale of a Chilean prodigy at the start of July.
