Portuguese newspaper A Bola have continued their claim that Bruno Fernandes is all set to sign a transfer agreement with Manchester United. They have also claimed that the details of the agreement have also been agreed among all the parties involved.

Discussions around an imminent transfer of the Sporting Lisbon attacking star have intensified in recent days with a host of tabloids and trusted news sources like Sky Sports and BBC joining the race to announce Manchester United’s interest in the player.

A Bola claim that Fernandes is set to sign a five-and-a-half-year contract that will see him earn £3.9m (€4.5m) per season.

Solskjaer, however, remained tight-lipped regarding any transfer possibility during his press conference on Tuesday when asked about a potential swoop for Fernandes.

I’ve got no transfer updates, so no,” he said.

“If we get something that we can tell you about we will, but I’ve got no news now.”

Sporting boss Silas has indicated he could have the Portugal international at his disposal for the hotly-contested clash against Benfica.

I can’t guarantee any of these things because I don’t know,” he admitted.

“I’m already thinking about the game with Benfica [on Friday] and I’m thinking about using him.”

It’s highly unlikely that the attacking midfielder will be available for our Premier League clash with Liverpool as Manchester United will have to register him by midnight on Friday for that to happen.

    A big risk that possibly backfired but have to take each game as it comes. Greenwood can fill in v Liverpool. Not Rashford I know but an able class lad.

    Have to take each game as it comes Rashford was substitute to give him night off but brought on to win the game avoid extra time. He didn’t score but played a part in the goal. Injuries are part and parcel of football it can happen any time anywhere.
