Having turned down a move to Manchester City in preference for playing at United, Angelo Henriquez says he is keen to play straight away. There had been suggestions that he would stay in Chile on loan but the young striker wants to come straight in to the team.

“If I go Manchester United it is to play,” he told El Mercurio. “The team will be involved in several competitions, so I have the opportunity to get minutes on the pitch with the first team. I have spoken to Alex Ferguson and he said that I would be under consideration this season. That excites me. I know that I will have a very difficult task because there are players in the team like Rooney, Van Persie and Chicharito Hernandez, but I couldn’t let this chance go by.”
