The Old Trafford giants are set to beat Arsenal and Tottenham to the transfer of the holding midfielder - who is poised to become Louis van Gaal's second signing of the summer.
Schneiderlin said on Wednesday he hoped his future would be resolved by next week, when Saints return for pre-season training, and senior United sources are confident a deal can be struck by then.
Van Gaal gave executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward the go-ahead to bid for France World Cup midfielder Schneiderlin, who now looks set to move to Manchester's Reds on a four-year deal.
