Manchester United have welcomed three players back to training prior to tomorrow’s crucial Europa League last 16 second leg tie against AC Milan.
Paul Pogba, Donny van de Beek and Edinson Cavani have all returned to fitness ahead of the game in Italy and supporters on Twitter are very happy to have the trio back available for selection:

With Pogba having not played since the beginning of February, it would be a surprise if manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer threw him back into the starting eleven straight away, so a place on the bench is the likeliest scenario.
Van de Beek has been out for a while as well, so the Dutchman may also have to settle for a role as a substitute. In Cavani’s case, however, Solskjaer will probably have no hesitation in selecting him from the start when they line up at the San Siro.
United need to get at least one goal and the Uruguayan international could well be the player to get the job done.
