London (dpa) - English football champions Manchester United announced the signing of Angola forward Manucho Goncalves on Friday.

The 24-year-old striker, who has scored twice in 10 appearances for his country, was snapped up after a three-week trial and signed a three-year deal to move from Angola's Petro Athletico in January.

"We have had Manucho here for a three-week trial and have been impressed enough to offer him a contract," United manager Sir Alex Ferguson said.

"He is a tall, agile, quick forward and through contacts that Carlos (Queiroz, the United assistant manager) has, was brought to our attention around six months ago."

The deal is subject to Manucho receiving a work permit.
