He will join hot prospects Marc Jurado and Alvaro Fernandez both who joined the Manchester club this summer.

Jurado signed from Barcelona after he turned-down a new deal with the Catalan giants, with Fernandez joining from Real Madrid.

United are set to officially unveil the trio before the start of the new season.
