Manchester United confirm 25 man Premier League squad

2 min read

Manchester United have left Sergio Romero and Phil Jones out of their 25-man squad submitted to the Premier League, but Marcos Rojo is included.

Goalkeeper Romero wanted to join Everton on deadline day and his wife accused the club of showing him ‘no respect’ by denying him the loan move.

The 33-year-old, who is in the final year of his contract, has now been left out of the squad for the Champions League and the Premier League and is still to return to training with United this season.

Jones is also out of both the Premier League and Champions League squads. The 28-year-old hasn’t played for United since January and is currently injured, but his contract runs until 2023.

Rojo, 30, wasn’t included in the Champions League squad submitted to UEFA, but he is in the list handed to the Premier League, which means he could feature domestically this season.

New signings Edinson Cavani and Alex Telles are included, while Facundo Pellestri qualifies as an under-21 player.

At the end of every transfer window, all Premier League clubs must submit their squad list to the Premier League for the current season.

Each squad can contain 25 players, of which there must be at least eight players who satisfy the criteria as being homegrown.

A home grown player is a footballer who has been registered with a club affiliated to the FA or the Football Association of Wales for a period of three entire seasons, or 36 months, before his 21st birthday.
