Premier League side, Manchester United have confirmed its 21-man squad for their Europa League clash against AC Milan on Thursday, March 18.
Paul Pogba, David De Gea, and Donny van de Beek have been included in Manchester United’s traveling squad for the second leg tie in San Siro on Thursday, March 18.
The World Cup-winning midfielder, Pogba, had been out with a thigh injury, missing United’s last 10 matches.

Anthony Martial, Eric Bailly, and Juan Mata have all missed out on a place in United’s traveling squad due to injury.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side was held to a 1-1 draw by Milan in the first leg at Old Trafford last week.
