View image |

After an absence of a year Manchester United return to Europe after securing their place in the Champions League group stages with a win in the final qualifying round over Club Brugge and will face off against

Louis van Gaal’s side have been slowly rebuilding over the past 18 months and the club is growing stronger by the day and they have bought well over the summer and with Wayne Rooney’s goalscoring return back underway and a more settled backline, van Gaal will have high hopes of making the latter stages of the competition.

They have bought in a number of players including former PSV star Memphis Depay and he will want to get one over his old team. The experience of Bastian Schweinsteiger will be key in a European campaign and look for him to play a more prominent part as he gets over his injury problems.

United may yet still dip into the transfer market for a defender as they are still not yet certain of their best back four and if David De Gea does indeed go to Real Madrid, they are likely to stick with Argentina’s national goalkeeper for the majority of the season unless a deal can be worked out with Hugo Lloris.

European competition will now return to Old Trafford and here we take a look at who Manchester United will face in the Champions League group stages.
