Lindegaard agent locked in Man Utd talks today
But the arrival of Lindegaard, 26, from Norwegian club Aalesunds is expected to be the first deal confirmed - perhaps before the weekend.
Jim Solbakken, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's agent, has been helping to negotiate the deal, which will go through in January.
United have scouted Lindegaard several times, with goalkeeper coach Eric Steele making personal checks on the man who has replaced Stoke's Thomas Sorensen as Denmark's No 1.
With Old Trafford star Edwin van der Sar approaching retirement and doubts over No 2 Tomasz Kuszczak, United are also tracking Rangers' Allan McGregor, Bayer Leverkusen's Rene Adler and Manuel Neuer of Schalke.
