Manchester United have decided to hand a trial to young Mexican winger Jurgen Damm after receiving a recommendation from the agent of striker Javier Hernandez.

Chicharito's representative Eduardo Hernandez informed Manchester United that the attacking midfielder was ready to make the move to Europe and the Premier League leaders have decided to see what he is capable of.

The Daily Mail has reported how Damm was due to sign with Spanish side Real Oviedo earlier this week but was unable to turn down the opportunity to work with United.

Mexican website has stated that Damm arrived in Manchester yesterday and will today report to the training ground in Carrington where he will hope to make a big impression on Sir Alex Ferguson.

Damm will train with United for eight days in which time officials at the club will decide whether to make an offer to his current club side Estudiantes Tecos.

Manchester United have often brought players over from South America in recent seasons with a number of young Brazilian players handed the chance to train in the youth teams.

However, Damm will be hoping that he can make a similar impression to his fellow Mexican Hernandez who has become an important member of the first team since arriving from C.D Guadalajara in the summer of 2010.

While United were forced to apply for a work permit for the talented striker, they will not have the same issue with Damm as his father was born in Germany and he holds an EU passport.

The 20-year-old will not be the only player on trial at United as Leicester City youngster Jeffrey Schlupp is also currently training with the club and is also looking to secure a professional contract.
