Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson is reportedly on the brink of landing a striker – 18-year-old Chilean Angelo Henriquez.

The teenager was believed to have undergone a medical in Manchester today, although it has been claimed in Chile that he will be immediately loaned back to his current club, Universidad de Chile.

United are yet to make any announcement on the subject.
