Manchester United expect to conclude the £18million signing of goalkeeper David De Gea by Friday.
De Gea passed a medical in Manchester on Monday and has agreed a five-year deal worth £75,000-a-week.
But the 20-year-old's change of agents has held up the deal, although United are confident it will be completed by the end of the week.
De Gea, writing on his official Twitter account, said: "I have been invited by Man U to see the club and the city with my family and to be given an offer."
The arrival of De Gea will take United's spending this summer to £50m, following the capture of defender Phil Jones from Blackburn and midfielder Ashley Young from Aston Villa, both for £16m.
Sir Alex Ferguson revealed last month United had been working on a deal to sign De Gea for "quite a while" and the completion of his move to succeed Edwin van der Sar is imminent.
