The defender looks set to become United’s first signing of the summer, with the Blades yet to add to their squad since falling from the Premier League.
Davies impressed at Preston North End, making 145 appearances for the Lilywhites during a lengthy spell at Deepdale.
The 26-year-old made a dream move to Liverpool in the January transfer window, with his contract at North End set to run out at the end of last season.

Slavisa Jokanovic has made no secrets about wanting to sign Davies this summer, as he looks to add a dynamic, ball-playing centre-half to fit into his style of play.
