Manchester City are threatening to trump Manchester United for Chilean wonderkid Angelo Henriquez.

The Daily Mail says an official deal already exists between Manchester United and the 18-year-old's club Universidad de Chile, with the Under 20 expected to complete a £4million switch in the near future.

However, City boss Roberto Mancini has sent his most trusted scout Gary Worthington to watch Henriquez in action during a recent youth international tournament in Holland.

Mancini is desperate to make a statement of intent in the transfer market having been frustrated with numerous targets throughout the summer, namely Robin van Persie and Eden Hazard.
