There is good news elsewhere on the injury front, though. The Sun reports Wayne Rooney “will be fit for United’s Euro showdown with AC Milan”. The paper reports Rooney is suffering from an inflamed kneecap tendon but the injury is not serious enough to keep him off the pitch.
Should Rooney not play against Milan, United fans won’t have any fears if Sir Alex asks Dimitar Berbatov to lead the line. On his performance at Wolves, The Times said: “Berbatov’s touch and moments of vision, especially when he nutmegged Berra with a backheel on the right flank, were something to behold.”
And finally, in transfer speculation, The Daily Mail claim the Reds have agreed a deal that would see 18-year old Standard Liege defender Marnick Vermijl arrive at Old Trafford in the summer.
