Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson has declared that Alexander Buttner and Angelo Henriquez will be the last of the club’s summer signings.
Henriquez, the 18-year-old Chilean striker, will finalise his move to Old Trafford over the next couple of days. He will link up with Shinji Kagawa, Nick Powell, Robin van Persie and Buttner, the Red Devils’ other recruits this summer.
“We definitely won’t be buying anyone else,” Ferguson said. “There is no movement about anyone going the other way.”
Meanwhile, Ferguson has lifted the lid on the details of, and history to, Henriquez’s switch from Universidad de Chile.
“Henriquez is on his way back to Manchester,” Ferguson said. “He had to go back to Chile after he got the work permit on Tuesday. We’ve had an option [on him] since he was 14 when he played against our youth team.
“He came over when he was 15 and then 16. We kept in close contact with him in that respect and, when he got to 18, it was a matter of whether or not we left him for another year or brought him in. But he had such a good summer with Chile’s Under-20s, we thought it wasn’t worth waiting, we may as well do it now.
“That took away a lot of interest from other clubs. We had the option on him, but options only last so long and we decided to take him in. He’s quick and a good finisher and he has a terrific physique for a boy of 18. He should be here on Sunday.”
