However, having considered their options, United have now decided that they will meet the clause in the midfielder's contract, which is reported to stand at £30m.

"Herrera will have to pass medical and United pay it all in cash but deal practically done," Balague wrote on the social networking site Twitter.

The former Spanish Under-21 international is now expected to travel to Manchester for discussions over personal terms and a medical examination.
