Claudio Lopez and Juan Pablo Sorin are poised to leave the Stadio Olimpico and head for Greater Manchester according to the News of the World.
"I received a call from a club director on Thursday and he sounded me out about a move to Manchester United," Lopez is quoted as saying.
"I told him I was flattered and to link up with Juan Veron again would be great - but he said Veron is part of the deal. He will join Lazio while Sorin and I will join United.
"The club have arranged for us to travel to England very soon to discuss terms with Manchester United."
Lopez is a pacy striker who carved his name with Valencia helping the club to two Champions League finals.
26-year-old defender Sorin arrives in Rome from Cruzeiro this summer but could be on his way to The Red Devils without playing a game for the Serie A club.
