Heâ€™s been given the green light by United to make his Wigan debut against Bournemouth in the FA Cup third round this weekend.
â€śThis is a fantastic opportunity for me and I am really excited after the manager has given this chance for me to prove myself,â€ť Henriquez said.
â€śNow I need to work to try and earn my place in the Wigan team.â€ť
Latics boss Roberto Martinez was delighted at securing the services of a centre-forward with Arouna Kone preparing to jet out next week for the African Nations Cup.
â€śWeâ€™re really excited about Angelo because he is a very young man with a huge potential,â€ť gushed Martinez.
â€śHeâ€™s a goalscorer with clever movement inside the box, and has had a very successful time in Chilean football.
â€śWe hope to have a good partnership in terms of allowing Angelo to develop as a footballer and learn of the demands of the English game, because I feel he can bring us something different in the forward line.
â€śIâ€™m sure the fans will give him a great welcome on Saturday, and it will provide him with the perfect opportunity to begin his experiences on the pitch in English football which is very exciting.â€ť
