Manchester United are likely to secure the signing of Ander Herrera from Athletic Bilbao tomorrow, according to El Correo.

Manchester United have agreed terms with Athletic Bilbao's Ander Herrera and are likely to wrap up the signing today, according to El Correo in Spain.

The newspaper, a local Bilbao source, states that United have already agreed a deal with their man and simply need to pay a release fee to ensure the deal goes ahead.

The deal is not believed to involve any complicated business over Spanish tax or release clauses that have been mooted in the press, with a mere €2m youth levy being all Bilbao will reportedly demand for the signing of their midfielder.

Herrera played no part in Bilbao's defeat to Real Madrid yesterday, despite having started the previous two games. Although the head coach later insisted this was not the reason and said he believed that Herrera would stay put, he also refused to rule out a move. Reports in the English press also seem to suggest a second bid today is likely, so this looks like it could have a chance of going ahead.
