The 24 year old has been linked with a move to the Premier League side for the best part of two years and will complete a £28.7m move imminently.

Man United will look to push through the deal as soon as possible, knowing that on July 1st the Athletic Bilbao star’s release clause will rise to £33m.

Incoming Man United boss Louis van Gaal is keen to strengthen his rather weak central midfield options and will hand Herrera a four year deal worth £2.3m a season.

Van Gaal will no doubt be handed a sizable transfer war-chest as Man United’s owners look to erase the memory of a shockingly disastrous 2013/14 campaign and Herrera may prove to be the first of many summer captures.

Herrera’s imminent arrival will leave the likes of Tom Cleverley, Michael Carrick, Darren Fletcher and Marouane Fellaini fearing for their Man United futures.

Herrera has completed three successful seasons at San Mames, helping his Basque to runners-up finishes in the Europa League and the Copa del Rey as well playing a pivotal role in Athletic Bilbao’s top four finish last term.
