United select 29-man squad for season restart
Manchester United have assembled a provisional 29-man squad ahead of the possible restart of the Premier League season next month.
United reopened their Carrington training complex on Wednesday for players to begin phase one of training in anticipation of the season’s likely resumption in June.
Paul Pogba and Marcus Rashford have reported for sessions now they have recovered from long-term injuries and manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has a fully-fit squad to choose from.
The United squad could be trimmed if the club fails to agree an extension for the loan of Shanghai Shenhua striker Odion Ighalo, whose contract expires on May 31. Angel Gomes is out of contract on June 30 and United have until June 23 to agree an extension until the end of the season with the 19-year-old.
United are expected to agree for Dean Henderson, Chris Smalling, Alexis Sanchez, and Marcos Rojo to stay out on loan.
Here’s the provisional squad:
Goalkeepers: David de Gea, Sergio Romero, Lee Grant, Nathan Bishop
Defenders: Aaron Wan-Bissaka, Diogo Dalot, Timothy Fosu-Mensah, Victor Lindelof, Harry Maguire, Eric Bailly, Axel Tuanzebe, Phil Jones, Luke Shaw, Brandon Williams
Midfielders: Paul Pogba, Nemanja Matic, Scott McTominay, Fred, Bruno Fernandes, Andreas Pereira, Jesse Lingard, Juan Mata, Angel Gomes.
Forwards: Tahith Chong, Daniel James, Odion Ighalo, Mason Greenwood, Anthony Martial, Marcus Rashford.
