Ander Herrera is meeting with Manchester United officials at their training ground in Carrington ahead of a switch to Old Trafford, Goal can reveal.
The Athletic Bilbao midfielder was met by Sir Bobby Charlton with a reception party at Carrington after he arrived in a white VW transporter before being shown around, along with his agent.
A £28 million transfer nears completion, with the Red Devils keen to do business quickly as his release clause would rise to around £32m on July 1.

The midfielder's agent was cautious when questioned about the possibility of securing a move but told the press that "things were moving along nicely".
The party flew into Northolt on a private flight on Tuesday ahead of talks with United officials at the training base on Wednesday.
Herrera would be Louis van Gaal's first summer signing and would see the 24-year-old finally complete a move that stalled at the end of the summer 2013 transfer window under then-boss David Moyes.
He said goodbye to his Athletic team-mates before flying out from Spain, with United having offered a contract worth £145,000 per week.
