Premier League giants Manchester United have revealed their 25-man squad for the upcoming UEFA Champions League season, with Marcus Rashford the notable absentee.
United fans needn’t be worried, however, because Rashford can be registered on the ‘B’ list of players who were born after 1 January 1997 and have been eligible to play for the club for more than two years.
Therefore, the 20-year-old striker can play in the Red Devils’group games, as can other young players who meet the criteria, despite not being in the squad published on Tuesday.
Summer signings Lee Grant, Diogo Dalot and Fred are included, as is fringe player Mateo Darmian.
All the other big names, including Paul Pogba, Alexis Sanchez and Romelu Lukaku are present as well.
The entire squad:
David De Gea
It should be noted that this squad is for the group stages only and the club can make changes should they qualify for the knockout rounds.
United have been given a trough group, for they will have to battle it out for a place in the last-16 with the likes of Juventus, Valencia and BSC Young Boys.
The Bianconeri, spearheaded by former United winger Cristiano Ronaldo, are expected to top the group, leaving the other three sides to battle it out for second spot.
United open their campaign with a trip to Swiss side Young Boys on September 19.
