Manchester United have agreed a £3million fee for 18-year-old Chilean striker Angelo Henriquez, according to the Daily Mail.

The talented teenager has earned rave reviews for a series of impressive performances in the Universidad de Chile first-team, scoring eight goals in ten appearances.

Red Devils boss Sir Alex Ferguson has been keeping tabs on Henriquez for over a year, as the young forward rose through the ranks in his homeland, and will now look to bring him to Old Trafford providing the club can gain a work permit.

The fact that Henriquez has not been capped at senior international level means United will be forced to go down the 'special talent' route, in order to get the green light for a transfer, but the club may be forced to send the player out on loan.

Having represented Chile at U15 and U17 level, Henriquez has already built himself quite a reputation in South America, and has been tipped for a bright future in the game.

United will hope that once in England, the striker can have a similar impact to the one that Javier Hernandez had in his first season in the Premier League.
