Sir Alex Ferguson moved for the youngster, pictured above in blue, after he scored eight goals in 10 first team appearances, as well as impressing at the various youth levels for club and country before making his senior bow.

But if that argument falls on deaf ears Henriquez will have to be loaned out somewhere on the continent were the work permit regulations are less prohibitive.
