Manchester United provide team news update ahead of AC Milan clash

Man United vs AC Milan

The Europa League returns to our screens later this week.

The Round of 16 is generally when we finally start to see some interesting ties pop up across the competition.

And one of the more high-profile clashes of the upcoming round will pit England and Italy’s 2nd best sides against one another, as Manchester United take on AC Milan.

As well as featuring two top sides battling it out, Thursday’s match was also expected to see Zlatan Ibrahimovic make a return to Old Trafford.

However, the Swede recently suffered an injury, and though AC Milan boss Stefano Pioli is hopeful of a return, the centre-forward being fit by Thursday remains up in the air:

“He is better. Tomorrow he will have another examination to see how his recovery is going, we hope he can recover by Thursday.
