Solskjaer remained uncertain and said there is no new update about the club’s plans and talks to sign Bruno Fernandes.
MySportDab understands United are close to a £50million agreement with Sporting Lisbon, with £15m for potential add-ons.

However, Fernandes did score twice in Sporting’s 3-1 win over Setubal on Saturday night.
The Portuguese club plan to keep their captain until at least after Friday night’s game against Benfica but they sell him this month to balance finances.
Now, Coach Solskjaer has hinted that negotiations have not progressed over the last few days as he spoke today at his Pre-FA Cup press conference.
“I have no transfer updates, so no,” Solskjaer said.
“If we get something that we can tell you about we will but I’ve got no news now.”
Solskjaer also confirmed that defender Ashley Young will not be play in tomorrow night’s clash with Wolves amid Inter Milan transfer links.
“Not playing at all,” the Norwegian answered when asked about his captain.
Manchester United are playing an FA Cup replay at Old Trafford after a goalless draw at Mollineux.
Wolves have now gone five matches unbeaten against Solskjaer’s team and the Norwegian is desperate to end the barren run.
“We’ve played them again and again so we’re gonna be facing a team that know almost everything about us,” Solskjaer said.
“We play them again in some weeks time in the league. We played a great first half last week but the second half was disappointing and at home we will make sure we go through.
“This tournament is one we think about winning when we are young, I did love my time in finals and winning trophies so we wanna go through.”
