Harry Maguire was included in the Manchester United travelling squad for Wednesday’s Europa League final against Villarreal.
The Red Devils captain has not played since injuring his ankle in the 3-1 Premier League win over Aston Villa on May 9.
Manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer admitted on Sunday he did not expect Maguire to be involved but that he would give the centre-back as long as possible to prove his fitness.
While Maguire is in the 26-man group heading to Gdansk, striker Anthony Martial misses out.
Martial has not played for United since March due to a knee injury sustained while away on France duty.
Solskjaer has named young forwards Anthony Elanga, Amad Diallo and Shola Shoretire in the travelling party, with all three having featured in the 2-1 win over Wolves on the final day of the Premier League season.
Elanga scored his first Premier League goal in the victory at Molineux.
United squad travelling to the Europa League final:
David de Gea, Dean Henderson, Lee Grant, Nathan Bishop; Eric Bailly, Victor Lindelof, Harry Maguire, Luke Shaw, Alex Telles, Axel Tuanzebe, Aaron Wan-Bissaka, Brandon Williams; Amad Diallo, Bruno Fernandes, Fred, Daniel James, Juan Mata, Nemanja Matic, Scott McTominay, Paul Pogba, Donny van de Beek; Edinson Cavani, Anthony Elanga, Mason Greenwood, Marcus Rashford, Shola Shoretire.
