MANCHESTER, England (AP) — Chilean striker Angelo Henriquez has finally completed his move to Manchester United, two weeks after being granted a work permit to join the Premier League giants.

United manager Alex Ferguson has been scouting the 18-year-old Henriquez since 2008 and says the youngster "fits the profile of a United player — skilful, attacking and someone who plays the game with real flair."

Henriquez, who joins from Universidad de Chile and hasn't yet played for his country, will initially be used in the reserves or the under-21 team but could be given a run-out for the first team in League Cup matches.

Henriquez says "I am thrilled to be joining the biggest club in the world."
