They face Villarreal in the final and it will be Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's first final as the club's boss.

  • GREEN SLEEVES

    Mason Greenwood became the youngest Englishman to reach 100 games for Manchester United and the third youngest overall.

    The Red Devils forward was named in the starting XI for the club's Europa League semi-final second leg tie against Roma aged just 19 years and 217 days.

    Greenwood is now ahead of club legends Ryan Giggs and Duncan Edwards in the top five list of players to hit 100 games.

    But he is behind Norman Whiteside who reached the milestone before his 19th birthday.

    And United icon George Best is also ahead of Greenwood, having reached the figure in 49 days fewer.

  • LUC’S IN

    Lucas Vazquez has hinted he will may Real Madrid this summer amid links with Man United and Chelsea.

    He told The Athletic: "I don't know what will happen. In the end, you never know what will happen in the future. 

    "Whatever happens, I will always be a Madrid fan. Without a doubt, my agents are doing a great job to get the best for me.

    “You have to be patient, knowing that playing for Real Madrid is difficult.

    "I think it has been the best of my career. That is reflected in the numbers. 

    "At first I did not play much, then when I had the opportunity at the Camp Nou, I played many games in a row, starting regularly. 

    "That gave me the confidence to feel important, a starter, which is what a player needs to get the best of himself ."

  • COMMENT BY NEIL CUSTIS

    Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is doing a magnificent job of tip-toeing through the broken glass of Sunday’s protest.

    On the one hand he does not want to affect the place he has in the hearts of Manchester United fans around the world.

    But then how can anyone seriously expect him to hit out at his own employers, the very people who have given him the chance to manage the club he served so well as a player?

    Solskjaer has been shamefully left to do a juggling act on his own, with not one of the owning Glazer family publicly addressing the disgruntled fans over their ownership model or the bid to break away into a European Super League.

  • PREDICTED XI

    Man United are in Rome for the second-leg of their Europa League semi-final tonight.

    And Ole Gunnar Solskjaer looks set to welcome David De Gea and Eric Bailly back into the side.

    The Red Devils lead 6-2 after the first-leg at Old Trafford.

    Goals from Bruno Fernandes (2), Edinson Cavani (2), Paul Pogba and Mason Greenwood gave United the emphatic win over the Italian side.

    Here’s how they could look against Roma tonight…

  • YOU BRUTY

    Bruno Fernandes said winning the Europa League can help Manchester United challenge for major honours next season.

    The midfielder told the club's media: "It's really important. A signal of the improvement of the team and it's a sign we are growing up as a team.

    "So keep our heads focused on what we have to do and what we have to achieve at this end of the season. When we come for the next one, we have time to think what we can do and what we can improve, still improve.

    “We have many games to go and the team has to end the season well. We have big games to come and I think the team is focused to do the best we can to end the season in the best way."

  • READY TO RUMBLE

    Bruno Fernandes says it doesn't matter who plays for Manchester United against Roma tonight - everyone is ready to get the job done.

    Fernandes bagged a double in the Europa League semi-final first leg last week to help United win 6-2 and take a big advantage into the return fixture in the Italian capital.

    The Portuguese told the club's website: "I think we have to approach the game well.

    "We know the qualities they have and what they caused us in the first half so we have to go there, not giving them any hope or chance to believe that they can change the result.

    "I think we have great players but, anyway, it doesn't matter who plays. We have qualities and everyone can do something for the team, everyone can score, everyone, if they have a chance, can do really well.

    "It doesn't matter who plays, everyone will be ready."

  • BRUACELL BUNNY

    Bruno Fernandes has claimed he will never be too tired to play ahead of Manchester United's Europa League semi-final second leg against Roma.

    The Portuguese maestro - who has played 52 games already this season - said: "For me, the most important [thing] is playing.

    "When the coach wants me, it's important to know I'm ready to play every game, every minute.

    "I will never say I'm [too] tired to play because this is my dream. I will never be tired to play.

    “When I was a kid, I played maybe seven or eight hours a day. So, to play 90 minutes every three days or two days is not enough for me."

  • REBEL HELL

    Uefa chiefs are threatening two-year European bans for the four Super league rebels who have still not pulled out of the project.

    England’s Big Six were the first to withdraw, with Champions League finalists Chelsea and Manchester City quickest out of the blocks once they realised the breakaway was dead in the water.

    But Real Madrid, Barcelona, Juventus and AC Milan have still to formally break free of the Super League project.

    And that has left Uefa on the verge of imposing serious sanctions UNLESS the quartet fold in the next few weeks.

    The Prem sides, along with Atletico Madrid and Inter, are expected to accept fines for their parts in the rebellion.

    Uefa head Aleksander Ceferin IS likely to push for softer punishments on the English teams after their rapid U-turns and acceptance of error.

  • CARN HAVE HIM

    Aston Villa are reportedly set to lose highly-rated youngster Carney Chukwuemeka this summer with Bayern Munich chasing the starlet.

    Rumours over the 17-year-old's future have circulated for some time and Premier League giants Manchester United and Liverpool have been linked.

    Manchester City, Monaco, PSV Eindhoven, Juventus and RB Leipzig are also said to be keen as the midfielder looks to break into the senior game.

    According to Football Insider, Bayern are leading the race having enjoyed past success in snapping up English football talent.

    Jamal Musiala joined from Chelsea before breaking out in recent months while Omar Richards is set to sign from Reading.

    Jude Bellingham and Jadon Sancho have also enjoyed great success in trading England for Germany, both with Borussia Dortmund.

    England youth international Chukwuemeka has made two Premier League benches but is yet to earn a senior debut.

  • MARTIAL LAW

    Ole Gunnar Solskjaer hinted Anthony Martial might not be KO'd for the rest of the season with injury as was previously thought.

    The Norwegian told the club's website: "He [Anthony] is looking good. He’s just about started outside jogging which is the first step on the rehab of course.

    "He’s done most of his work in the gym and to see him out getting some fresh air is good.

    "And then hopefully we will see him. He’s supporting the team, he wants to be part of a final and he’s working hard to be available even before then."

  • CRUISE CONTROL?

    Manchester United are 90 minutes away from the Europa League final and they have a four-goal advantage against Roma going into the second leg.

  • TOP DOGS

    Ole Gunnar Solskjaer revealed his side are 'ready' to finally break their semi-final hoodoo against Roma in the Europa League second leg tonight.

    The Red Devils have lost four semi-finals in a row under the Norwegian, including to Sevilla in last year's competition.

    Solskjaer told the club's website: "Of course. It’s been well-documented that this is the fifth time we’re at this stage in the last 15 months.

    "The boys are ready, they’re motivated and we’ve given ourselves a good starting point, but we have to go there and play a good game again."

  • TIME TO FOCUS

    Ole Gunnar Solskjaer said his side must keep their eyes on the prize despite taking a four-goal advantage into tonight's Europa League semi-final second leg away at Roma.

    The Norwegian boss told the club's website: "That's our job to do so and that's what we're trying to do.

    Of course, we spent days to prepare for the Liverpool game, we were ready for it and we'll have to do that again at some point.

    "But, unfortunately, the game didn't go ahead. The players really wanted to play and we felt ready for it.

    "Now all our focus is on this game and we've given ourselves a very good foundation with a good result from the first leg. But we go to this one wanting to win this one.”

  • SOL RESPONSIBILITY

    Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is 'unhappy' with Gary Neville's role in promoting anti-Glazer sentiment among Manchester United fans, according to reports.

    The influential Sky Sports pundit has repeatedly slated the Glazers since their controversial decision to try and breakaway as part of the botched European Super League.

    And those behind the scenes believe that Neville, 46, is playing a part in fuelling fan unrest which led to Sunday's mass protest and match postponement at Old Trafford.

    Solskjaer, 48, and his staff were against the Super League.

    But, according to the Mail, they believe that Neville is taking things too far.

    And they want the passionate Man United legend to 'tone down his rhetoric', in order to prevent further fan protests.

    Neville was present at Old Trafford as part of the punditry team on Sunday, and defended United supporters' right to protest against the Glazers.

  • HARV TO SAY NO

    Phil Neville has signed another English player for Inter Miami - his son.

    Harvey Neville, 18, has been in the Manchester United youth system since turning 16 in 2018.

    Previously on the books at Manchester City and then Valencia before heading to United, he signed his first professional contract last summer.

    But he wants some guaranteed first-team football and is swapping Old Trafford for South Florida.

    Full-back Harvey has been training with his dad's new team recently after getting some time off and has decided to make the switch permanently.

    He will initially join Inter Miami's sister team Fort Lauderdale CF once he sorts his visa.

    Fort Lauderdale play in the USL - effectively the second tier in the United States.

  • MATA OF TIME

    Lazio are considering a move for Manchester United star Juan Mata, according to reports.

    The Spaniard is set to be out of contract this summer, having become a bit-part player at Old Trafford.

    Having turned 33 last month, the attacking midfielder is seeking his next opportunity - and the security of a multi-year deal.

    According to Il Tempo, Lazio could offer Mata a two-year contract - with the option of a third season on top.

    Boss Simone Inzaghi would like to sign the experienced star, having missed out on one of his compatriots last season.

    Lazio appeared all set to sign David Silva 12 months ago, upon the expiry of his contract at Manchester City.

    But the City legend performed a last minute U-turn, instead joining Real Sociedad.

  • GOOD MORNING RED DEVILS FANS

    SunSport can exclusively reveal Man United are braced for bids for Diogo Dalot this summer – with loan side AC Milan keen on a permanent deal.

    We understand the Rossoneri will attempt to land him when the transfer window opens for around £15million.

    The Portuguese defender is set to explore his options this summer after falling down the pecking order at Old Trafford.

    He can play on both at both left and right-back, but the £40,000-a-week man is not in Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s current plans.

    SunSport can also reveal the Glazers are ready to sanction a £90m Manchester United bid for Harry Kane as they desperately attempt to quash fan fury.

    Sunday’s protests hit home in Florida, where the controversial owners are based — and they are keen to dampen the anger.

    Though there is little interest in selling up, the need to win back favour is obvious.

    One option being considered is an attempt to sign the world-class striker boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer wants.

    Spurs ace Kane is top of their list and SunSport understands he would be interested in an Old Trafford move.

    Finally, Man Utd received a police escort to the airport as they flew out to Italy for their Europa League semi-final second leg against Roma.

    The Red Devils were afforded the extra safety measures just days after fans stormed Old Trafford causing Sunday’s Premier League match against Liverpool to be postponed.

    United face Roma in the Italian capital today with a hefty four-goal advantage following the 6-2 thrashing at Old Trafford last week.

  • BENZ AND GONE

    Sir Alex Ferguson was so desperate to sign Karim Benzema he had to be pulled away from him, according to Rio Ferdinand.

    He said on BT Sport: "The first time I played against him, Sir Alex Ferguson wanted to sign him.

    "He was speaking to him in the tunnel after the game and Lyon officials had to pull him away. His movement that day was brilliant."

  • MEN UNITED

    Bruno Fernandes has urged Man Utd to keep hold of Edinson Cavani and Paul Pogba this summer.

    He said: “Quality players always bring quality to the team. Of course we all know what Paul and Edi can do for the team, we know the quality they have. 

    “People can have doubts about them sometimes but we as a team never had.

    “They are really important for us. The qualities they have, it is difficult to find on the market for a good price. 

    “I think everyone knows the team is growing up and with their help too. It's important for us we keep our best players and keep improving as a team.”
