Ighalo Makes Man Utd UCL Squad For PSG Clash, Maguire, Cavani Out

Odion Ighalo was selected in Manchester United squad that will take on Paris Saint-Germain in Tuesday’s Champions League matchday one tie in France.

United announced the 21-man squad that will be in France for the Group H opener with last season’s finalists.

However, new signing Edison Cavani and world’s most expensive defender Harry Maguire will not be in the squad.

Cavani, 33, only started training with his new teammates on Sunday after quarantining for two weeks following his deadline day signing. 

The Uruguayan has not played a competitive match since PSG beat Borussia Dortmund on March 11.

Maguire was deemed a doubt for the Saturday night trip to Newcastle but started and scored United’s equaliser in their 4-1 win. 

Maguire and Cavani were absent when the United squad arrived at Manchester Airport on Monday afternoon.

Mason Greenwood was also missing from the flight after he sat out the Newcastle win with an unspecified injury. 

United have also included new arrival Facundo Pellistri in their squad to face the French champions.

Other teams grouped with United and PSG are Turkish club Istanbul Basaksehir and semi-finalists from last season RB Leipzig.
