Manchester United are set to complete the signing of talented young Uruguayan Guillermo Varela, as revealed by Sportsmail last month.

The full-back spent time on trial at Old Trafford in the final weeks of last season, and did enough to impress coaches and earn an offer.

Steps had already been made to sign the 20-year-old before David Moyes was confirmed as successor to Sir Alex Ferguson last month.

Varela will arrive in Manchester shortly to complete the deal after a fee of around £1million was agreed with his club, Penarol.

The Uruguyan club’s treasurer, Rodolfo Catino, is travelling with the player to iron out the final few details.

He Tweeted on Wednesday: ‘In San Pablo airport waiting for the connection to London, with Guille [Varela] about to board.’
