The Bantams look set to go back into administration, but the sale of the prized asset may give them some breathing space.
Bradford boss Bryan Robson confirmed earlier this month to skysports.com that his club would have to consider any approach and now it seems they have accepted an offer.
The Blades are looking to bolster the attacking options for the final run-in to the season and manager Neil Warnock has opted for Gray.
The former Leeds United and Nottingham Forest star is now due at Bramall Lane to discuss personal terms, but he should seal his move before this weekend's clash with Reading.
Sunderland were thought to be leading the chase for Gray, but now Sheffield United have leaped to the front of the queue.
Bantams managing director Shaun Harvey confirmed the cash-strapped club have agreed a fee with their Yorkshire rivals for Gray.
"The board have agreed a fee with Sheffield United, which will remain undisclosed, for the transfer of Andy Gray who in the summer would have been a free agent and able to walk away from the club on a free transfer," Harvey told the club's official website.
