ex Chelsea boss Jose Mourhino finally agrees deal with Manchester United
Negotiations between Mourinho's agent Jorge Mendes and senior United officials have concluded, although no contract has been signed.
An official announcement from the club is expected on Friday.
The former Chelsea boss will replace Dutchman Louis van Gaal, who was sacked on Monday, two days after United won the FA Cup.
The BBC reported on Saturday, within an hour of United's 2-1 win over Crystal Palace, that Van Gaal would be sacked and Mourinho was set to replace him.
Discussions, which started on Tuesday and were delayed by negotiations over Mourinho's image rights, finally finished on Thursday.
The 53-year-old is likely to sign a three-year contract and has won the Premier League three times with Chelsea.
