The 24-year-old completed his medical earlier in the week but the deal hadn’t been officially announced until now.
Blind becomes the fifth signing by Louis van Gaal and Radamel Falcao is set to be the sixth if he successfully completes a medical this evening.
Although Blind is likely to be unveiled as a United player tonight, he isn’t currently at Carrington and neither is Louis van Gaal.
Both are in Holland at the Dutch Footballer of the Year awards where Blind is expected to win the main award.

Blind’s arrival is fantastic for United as he will add some real solidarity to a midfield which has been very poor at the start of the season.
