Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has included new signings, Cristiano Ronaldo, Raphael Varane and Jadon Sancho in Manchester United's squad for the 2021/22 UEFA Champions League.

United would be seeking revenge of their Europa League defeat to Villareal in Group F, alongside, Atalanta and Young Boys.

Ronaldo would be eager to impress the Red Devils fans after making his return to the club after 12 years after leaving the club for Real Madrid.

Meanwhile, youngster - Mason Greenwood - would feature in the competition though he was not included on the 25-man list

UEFA rules state that any player under the age of 21 that qualifies as "homegrown" doesn't need to be registered as part of the maximum 25-man squad for the tournament and can instead be included on the B list.

Chelsea squad:

Goalkeepers: Kepa Arrizabalaga, Marcus Bettinelli, Edouard Mendy, Lucas Bergström
