Manchester United striker Angelo Henriquez has settled in well since his summer move to the club, and reserve team manager Warren Joyce has been impressed by the application of the Chilean.

The 18-year-old moved to Manchester from Universidad de Chile in August, and scored on his debut for the club's under-21 side in a 4-2 defeat of Newcastle.

Sir Alex Ferguson is already blessed with a wealth of goalscoring talent at Old Trafford, with the likes of Wayne Rooney, Robin van Persie, Danny Welbeck and Javier Hernandez competing for a place in the first-team.

It is a daunting prospect for young Henriquez as he tries to make his way into the reckoning for Ferguson's senior side, but Joyce says the United boss sees the youngster as a player for the long-term.

"It's a long-term project," explained Joyce to MUTV. "Angelo is a great lad. He's come to the country and fitted in well."

Henriquez may, however, be handed a route into the United first-team should Hernandez be sold to Real Madrid, as reports on Friday claim.
