Manchester United have annouced via their official website that Angelo Henriquez has been granted a work permit ahead of a proposed move to the Premier League side.

The 18-year-old striker has made an impressive impact in his first season for Universidad de Chile, scoring 14 goals in 15 Apetura games. The young striker has also made an impression on the international scene, grabbing 14 goals in just nine appearances for Chile`s Under-20 side.

Henriquez`s goal scoring exploits have caught the eye of the Premier League giants and now the Red Devils look set to complete a £3.5 million move for the youngster.

The striker is set to play his last game for Universidad on Wednesday against Santos, and the Old Trafford club say that another announcement on his future will be made in due course.
