Here are some of the Tweets that caught our eye.
Hisham (@Hisham_tkh) knows nothing about Henríquez: “Ángelo Henríquez? Who’s that?”
And he’s not the only one – Gary Hind (@gazzhind): “Is this Ángelo Henríquez any good? I can’t say I’ve heard of him before #mufc!”
But Alex Terrell (@alxanderterrell) comes to their rescue with a description of the striker’s attributes: “Ángelo Henríquez looks a small, on the shoulder-of-the-last-defender type striker, good movement, creates space, bags of pace (sort of similar to Javier Hernández).”
Meanwhile, Andy Fowler (@AndyFowlerMusic) is hoping Henríquez’s arrival doesn’t spell the end of Robin van Persie’s reported move to United: “I hope Angelo Henriquez isn’t instead of RVP…”
Loke Weng Kin (@LwinLoke) reckons it does: “So Ángelo Henríquez signed for Man Utd, I guess no more Van Persie.”
But James Prentice (@JWHPrentice) is still holding out hope: “Ángelo Henríquez. Man Utd’s new player – I caught some snippets on YouTube. Looks decent! Need to sign the big man ASAP though #RVP.”
Stefan Georgiou (@Sgeorgiou) would be delighted to pip Manchester City to Henríquez’s signature: “Please let’s sign Ángelo Henríquez, it will be even sweeter because City want him too #united!”
Sadat Bicaku (@SadatBicaku) is pleased with the prospective signing: “Ángelo Henríquez is a good young talent for #manutd!”
Craig Smith Smithy (@Smithy0100) is excited but wants Danny Welbeck and Wayne Rooney to be first choice up front at United: “Ángelo Henríquez has gone to Man Utd – he’s class for 18! Hell of a striker! Hopefully Welbeck and Rooney will still be prioritised!”
But Rob Friend (@RobMFriend) can’t see the Chilean going straight into United’s first-team: “I wonder if Ángelo Henríquez will go straight out on loan or play for reserves? #MUFC”
Suhaib Hussain (@MSuhaibH)thinks United’s squad now has too many strikers: “Wow, Man Utd’s signing Ángelo Henríquez came out of nowhere! Welcome. Too many strikers though? :S But we will see what happens! #Potential”
Izzoh (@guzlah_cfc) is an unhappy Chelsea fan: “So #ManUtd are signing £2m kids and calling them wonder kids! What a joke. Who is Ángelo Henríquez? Better than Hazard! No!”
Finally, Amarit Bains (@amaritbains) would like to see Ferguson focusing on United’s midfield instead of signing strikers: “Welcome to Manchester, Ángelo Henríquez. Centre midfield looking a bit lightweight though.”
