Reports in Spain claim that Manchester United are on the verge of signing Athletic Bilbao midfielder Ander Herrera.

Numerous reports in Spain have claimed that Manchester United have reached an agreement to sign Ander Herrera from Athletic Bilbao.

The Premier League champions failed with a bid, reported to be worth £25m, for the midfielder on Friday, which was believed to have ended their pursuit.

However, the 24-year-old was left on the bench for Bilbao's ongoing La Liga clash against Real Madrid today, which has resulted in the rumours that a deal has been struck.

The speculation in the player's homeland has suggested that Herrera could fly to England as early as this evening for discussions over personal terms and a medical, with the transfer potentially being announced tomorrow.

It is believed that the release clause in Herrera's contract is worth £30m.
