  • United submit UCL squad to UEFA
  • Sacho included in the 25-man squad
  • Van de Beek fails to make the cut

WHAT HAPPENED? The English winger found himself on the squad list despite firing shots at Erik ten Hag on social media after he was left out of the squad to face Arsenal due to his performances in training. However, Van de Beek had been left out of the squad as he is reportedly in talks with Galatasaray over a potential loan move to the Turkish side as Super Lig clubs are able to sign players until September 15.

THE BIGGER PICTURE: All new summer signings such as Andre Onana, Mason Mount and Rasmus Hojlund have been named including deadline-day incomings like Altay Bayindir, Jonny Evans, Sergio Reguilon and Sofyan Amrabat. Injured players Tyrell Malacia and Luke Shaw have also been included in the 'A' List.

Alejandro Garnacho has been excluded from this list but will be named in the B list which could also potentially feature Hannibal Mejbri and a fourth academy goalkeeper. This list is made up of homegrown talent and can be amended ahead of each group stage fixture.
