Cruyff has been handed a trial at the Reebok Stadium and he will join the club during pre-season training.
The ex-Dutch international is looking for a new club after being released by Espanyol and is available on a free transfer.
Cruyff spent four seasons at United after joining at the end of Euro 96 before moving onto Alaves where he helped the unfashionable club reach the Uefa Cup final where they lost to Liverpool.
Bolton boss Sam Allardyce is scouring the free transfer market for signings and Cruyff could be a valuable addition to his squad.
Allardyce will cast an eye over Cruyff in training and if he impresses he could offer him a deal at the club.
