David de Gea has confirmed that he is edging closer to a move to Manchester United, with terms set to be discussed.
The 20-year-old goalkeeper was spotted in England on Monday arriving for his medical.
An £18million move from Atletico Madrid has been touted for some time, but was put on hold as De Gea helped Spain to European U21 Championship glory.
With that tournament having reached a conclusion on Saturday, he is now free to complete the switch and is making rapid progress in pushing through a deal.
With physical examinations out of the way, the youngster has revealed that he is set to take in a tour of Old Trafford and discuss personal terms.
De Gea wrote on his Twitter account: "I have been invited by Man U to see the club and the city with my family and to be given an offer."
United plan to make the highly-rated Spanish shot-stopper their long-term successor to Edwin van der Sar, who has opted to hang up his boots.
Sir Alex Ferguson recently revealed that he had been chasing De Gea for 'quite a while' and it appears as though he may be about to get his man.
