Manchester United will have no shortage of representatives at this summer’s European Championship.
The tournament, which will be held across a number of cities in Europe, has been delayed by a year after the covid-19 pandemic mean it could not happen in 2020 — though for marketing and logistical reasons it’s still called ‘Euro 2020’.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will be a keen observer with many of his squad set to light up the competition.
Here are the United players who could feature at the tournament and those fighting for a spot:
The confirmed players
Victor Lindelof, Scott McTominay, Paul Pogba, Bruno Fernandes and Donny van de Beek have all been confirmed in their respective nations’ squads.
At the time of writing, the England, Spain and Wales squads have not yet been announced. But goalkeepers David de Gea and Dean Henderson will surely both go to the tournament with their countries. And in terms of England representatives, Luke Shaw and Marcus Rashford will surely get into Gareth Southgate’s 26-man squad. Harry Maguire will join them, providing he shakes off his current ankle injury.
Daniel James is a key part of the Wales squad and will play at the tournament, for sure.
Mason Greenwood’s recent form for United has put him in with a shot of making Southgate’s England squad, although Aaron Wan-Bissaka’s chances look bleak because of the sheer number of high-class English right-backs.
Youngster Dylan Levitt has been in Wales squads in the past, though has endured an indifferent season on loan at Charlton Athletic and then Croatian side Istra 1961. He could still make the cut for the Welsh squad.
Another outside contender in England terms is Jesse Lingard, who has rediscovered form on loan at West Ham. But like Wan-Bissaka, he plays in a position where the Three Lions have plenty of options.
