Sir Alex Ferguson has revealed that Manchester United are on the lookout for new talent in Central and South America.

The Red Devils boss has sent scouts to that part of the world in the hope it will bring more players to the club, following on from the recent Old Trafford success stories of players like Rafael and Fabio Da Silva, Anderson and Javier Hernandez.

Chilean teenager Angelo Henriquez is the latest to put pen to paper with United, and it would be no surprise to see others following in his footsteps in the years to come, following the scouting expansion.

"Our scouting there has increased," Ferguson told Inside United. "We've got an operative in Mexico, two in Brazil and four South American scouts now.

"Quite frankly, they do produce. The South Americans love playing football, it's just in their blood.

"The three Brazilians - Anderson, Rafael and Fabio - love it and are first to training every morning. It's a breath of fresh air."

Having worked with a number of players from that part of the world over the past few years, Ferguson has no qualms about adding to his South American contingent at Old Trafford, because of the exemplary attributes, and hard-working attitude each of them seem to possess.

"Antonio Valencia is as tough as nails with great discipline about him," added the United boss. "Chicharito has a fantastic attitude to playing and everything else.

"It's really good. We've done very well in Central and South America in the last two or three years."
