Manchester United youngster Angelo Henriquez will join Segunda side Real Zaragoza on loan this season, according to Spanish newspaper AS.

The Old Trafford starlet spent last term on loan at Wigan Athletic having joined the club from Universidad de Chile for a fee reported to be £4m 12 months ago.

He's yet to make a Premier League appearance for United, although he did feature in several of the team's preseason games under David Moyes.

He's impressed in the reserves, and scored a goal under Roberto Martinez at Wigan last season in the top flight.

The Chilean attacker spent the summer with his under-20 national team in Turkey at the under-20 World Cup, and the report claims he's set to continue his development with a temporary move to Spain.

Real Zaragoza currently play in the Spanish second division following their relegation from La Liga last season.

The report claims the Spanish side have pledged to pay 10 per cent of the United forward's wages as part of the deal.

United clearly still rate the 19-year-old highly, and reportedly rejected Zaragoza's attempt to insert a loan-to-buy clause in Henriquez's contract.

Moyes has plenty of attacking options at present though, which may have led him to explore loan opportunities for Henriquez.

Danny Welbeck, Wayne Rooney, Robin Van Persie and Javier Hernandez have all occupied places in the United first-team squad, and with no clear route to the senior squad at the moment, the Chilean has decided to look for regular football elsewhere for the time being.
