Manchester United’s players are getting ready to compete for their respective nations at this summer’s European Championship, which gets under way on Friday night.
United will hope to see Marcus Rashford, Luke Shaw and Dean Henderson all involved for England — though Harry Maguire remains in a race to get fit for the tournament, after suffering an ankle injury.

On the transfer front, United are trying to clinch deals for Jadon Sancho and Kieran Trippier, while it is expected that Aston Villa’s veteran goalkeeper Tom Heaton will return to Old Trafford this summer. The window opens today.
