Manchester United manager, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, remained cautious about Bruno Fernandes’ availability, to face Wolves in the Premier League this weekend.
The Red Devils on Wednesday confirmed that they have agreed a deal with Sporting Lisbon for Fernandes.
However, speaking to BBC after their 1-0 win over Manchester City in the Carabao Cup later in the day, Solskjaer said: “Bruno Fernandes ready to play against Wolves? Let’s get the contract signed and transfer done. The boy is fit and ready to play.
“What can Bruno Fernandes bring? A lot. Hopefully, we can get it over the line then we can talk more about the boy.”
United will pay an initial fee of 55m euros (£46.56m) plus add-ons for Fernandes, with the deal eventually rising to 80m euros (£67.76m).
Sporting would receive a further 10m euros (£8.46m) from the Red Devils if Fernandes reaches what are considered easily achievable targets and an additional 15m euros (£12.7m) if more difficult targets are met.
