Harry Maguire is running out of time to be fit for the Europa League final on Wednesday and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has set a deadline for him to train.


Harry Maguire must train with his Manchester United teammates in Gdansk on Tuesday if he is to be fit for the Europa League final.

Maguire has been out for two weeks with an ankle ligament injury and the captain is running out of time to lead his side out against Villarreal.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has admitted Maguire is now unlikely to be fit for United's first final in three years, having missed four games since picking up the injury against Aston Villa.

They are the only four Premier League fixtures Maguire has missed in two years at United and they've won only once without him, on the final day against Wolves.

His absence in Poland will be a major blow to United, with one of Eric Bailly or Axel Tuanzebe stepping in to partner Victor Lindelof, but Solskjaer is refusing to give up on Maguire just yet, although he admits he has to take part in the final training session to have a chance of playing.

"Of course he wants to play, it will be up to the doctor to say how he is but he doesn’t look great. Ever the optimist I’m still hopeful for him," said Maguire.

"He has to train on Tuesday when we’re over there [if he's to play], it’s not many days and I don’t expect him to be ready."

Solskjaer's other major selection dilemma is likely to be between Marcus Rashford and Mason Greenwood on the right-wing, with both of them unused substitutes against Wolves on the final day of the season.

Greenwood has finished the season in fine form with eight goals in his last 13 appearances, but Rashford has always been one of Solskjaer's most trusted lieutenants.

Asked if the battle between those was going to be one of his biggest selection decisions for Wednesday's final, Solskjaer said: "You might say so, both of them have done really well, but we’ll see.

"We’ll pick a team we think will create problems for Villarreal. Luckily I could rest both of them today so they will both be knocking on my door."
