Firmino has been heavily linked with a move to the Red Devils over recent months, and TalkSport reports that the Premier League giants have agreed to stump up £13.1m for the Brazilian midfielder.
The 23-year-old scored 12 goals in 32 appearances for Hoffenheim last term and is able to play as a forward as well as a variety of positions in the midfield and would be a massive coup for Louis van Gaal if he does accept a move to United.
Firmino has also been linked with Liverpool, but it now seems United are in pole position to snare the Brazilian international’s signature.
He earned a call-up to Dunga’s Copa America squad after impressing in his short international career after debuting for the Seleção in a 4-0 win over Turkey in November 2014.
Firmino joined Hoffenheim from Figueirense in 2011 and has since scored 35 goals in 145 league apperances.
