Henriquez Signs for Man Utd, Owen Goes to Stoke

Manchester United is seeking to improve their squad this season in playign against tough oponnent league sides Manchester City, Chelsea and Arsenal. The arrival of Angelo Henriquez to the club shows the club’s commitment to impose a stronger showing in the Premier League.

The ex-Universidad de Chile striker signed an undisclosed-fee agreement with United. He will stay at Old Trafford for four years and will serve as a future reinforcement to the likes of Danny Welbeck, Javier “Chicharito” Hernandez, Wayne Rooney and Robin van Persie.

Sir Alex Ferguson, United manager, said that Henriquez’ ability to read games well equalled with his rapid pace in the pitch highly suits the playing style of the club. He is positive that the club – known for its potential to form talented young players into greater players, will bring out the best in the Chilean striker while he is still at a young age.

Henriquez has long been a target of United. Ferguson noted that the club first met the striker four years ago – when the player was 14 years old. The club then monitored the player during his stint with the Chile Under-20 team and noted his excellent play.

Stoke City acquired the services of ex-Manchester United striker Michael Owen. Signing for a one-year offer, the Premier League board officially sanctioned his newfound affiliation with the Potters.

As the seventh summer signing of Stoke, Owen remarked his excitement to join manager Tony Pulis. He praised the manager for forming an excellent squad in which he thinks he could fit in. Liverpool, Everton and Sunderland subsequently refuted reports that they were going after the striker.

Owen has played for the England international team, but he has not played for them since 2008. He has a record of 89 international caps with 40 goals. United signed him for a three-year deal in 2009, but only recorded 52 matches and 17 goals with the Red Devils following injury problems.
