Manchester United drew PSV Eindhoven, CSKA Moscow and VfL Wolfsburg in group B of the UEFA Champions League. Their campaign commences with an away trip to Eindhoven on 15th September.
Below is the squad that Louis van Gaal has selected for his European campaign:
David De Gea
Notice the inclusion of David De Gea, meaning that if the Reds were to sell him to Real Madrid in January, he would be cup ties for the remainder of the tournament, and so couldn’t play for Los Blancos in the Champions League.
The only non-first team player in the squad is Guillermo Varela, a 22 year old Uruguayan who was on loan to Real Madrid Castilla last season. Sir Alex Ferguson gave him a 2 week trial in his last month as boss. The club then signed him when Moyes’ term began.
