MANCHESTER, England -- Juan Mata has arrived at Manchester United's training complex by helicopter to undergo a medical examination before sealing his club-record move to the Premier League champions from Chelsea.

The Spain midfielder was greeted by United manager David Moyes after landing at the training ground, a day after the club confirmed it has reached an agreement with Chelsea.

Although financial details weren't disclosed, United made a bid of 37 million pounds ($61 million) this week. Its previous record transfer was Dimitar Berbatov, who joined for 30.7 million pounds from Tottenham in 2008.

United is banking on the arrival of Mata, who fell out of favour at Chelsea this season, to spark an upturn in fortunes with the team struggling to qualify for next season's Champions League.
