Marcus Rashford is out of Thursday's Europa League quarter-final first leg at home to Sevilla on Thursday, following the striker's withdrawal from the win over Everton. He is set to miss the next "few games" due to a muscle injury.
Meanwhile, prospective new owners of Manchester United will enter a third round of bidding at the end of this month as the Raine Group call for final offers.
Both Sir Jim Ratcliffe and Sheikh Jassim bin Hamad al-Thani are expected to table third offers, with as many as seven parties still in the running for a takeover of the club. None of the previous bids are thought to have matched the £6billion valuation set by the Glazers.
Finnish businessman Thomas Zilliacus pleaded for a swift resolution to the process on Tuesday evening, calling on the Glazers to 'negotiate face-to-face' with what he believes to be three serious bidders. Gary Neville, meanwhile, has labelled the decision to open a new round of bidding as 'classless' and suggested it could impact United's transfer activity.
TODAY'S BIG TALKING POINT: Are the Glazers dragging out the takeover process unnecessarily? Have your say here.

Pick the team
REPORT: Reds eyeing Gravenberch
United are one of three Premier League clubs keeping tabs on Ryan Gravenberch with the Dutch midfielder considering his future, according to90min.
Gravenberch joined Bayern from Ajax last summer, but has managed just 323 minutes in the Bundesliga this season with Joshua Kimmich and Leon Goretzka ever-present in midfield.
At 20-years-old, the midfielder is eyeing a path to first-team football and is set to analyse his chances of doing so in Bavaria ahead of the summer. United, Liverpool and Arsenal have all asked to be kept informed of his decisions ahead of a potential summer move.
United have been in regular contact with Bayern all season and could also look to make Marcel Sabitzer's loan move permanent.
Will these two make a return to the starting-XI tomorrow?
United told two signings that would make them title challengers
Wes Brown believes adding Harry Kane and Jude Bellingham to the squad this summer would make United title challengers in the next few years.
United hold an interest in both stars, with Erik ten Hag keen on adding a world-class goalscorer and a ball-playing No.8 this summer.
Here's what Brown told William Hill podcast, No Tippy Tappy Football:
“If Manchester United sign Harry Kane and Jude Bellingham, they win the league in the next three years. I don’t see why they couldn’t with those players and the manager they have.
“Kane wants to go to Manchester United; they’d love him. We know what he can do in the Premier League, so they aren’t messing about there. He is a bit older and will probably cost a lot of money, but he will do the job straight away.
"He’ll bring the missing piece United can’t seem to get right at the moment. They need someone that is scoring goals week in, week out.”
REPORT: United hold Mamardashvili talks
Agents of Valencia goalkeeper Giorgi Mamardashvili have held talks with a number of Premier League clubs last week including United, according to90min.
Mamardashvili has been a shining light in an otherwise dismal season for Valencia, with the Spanish side currently in the relegation zone.
The 22-year-old has attracted interest from a number of top-flight clubs for a string of fine performances, promising high potential for the young Georgian.
United are one of those interested and representatives from Old Trafford have reportedly held initial talks with the goalkeeper's representatives. The report does add that several clubs have done the same, including Chelsea, Tottenham and Leicester City.
Valencia are expected to want £30million for their man.
Full focus on Sevilla tomorrow

Thomas Zilliacus pulls out of United bidding process

Reports last night suggested a third round of bidding was set to take place with a deadline of April 28 set by the Raine Group.
I have declined participation in a third bidding round for United. The bidding is turning into a farce, with Glazers giving no respect to the club. The delays will make it very difficult for any new owner to build a winning team for next season.— Thomas Zilliacus (@TZilliacus) April 12, 2023

REPORT: Brighton's Caicedo demands
Brighton want at least £80million for the United-linked Moises Caicedo, according toFootball Insider.
Erik ten Hag is keen to strengthen in defensive midfield, with the absence of Casemiro this season leading to a marked drop off in quality and results. The Reds have been linked with Caicedo in the past and are thought to have retained their interest.
Brighton turned down an offer of around £70million from Arsenal in January, instead tying Caicedo down to a new contract which will run until 2027.
Despite that, the Seagulls will reportedly accept an offer around £80million this summer, so long as it leaves them time to find a replacement.

REPORT: Bayern eyeing Osimhen
Bayern Munich are interested in Victor Osimhen and the Napoli striker would be open to a move, according toSky Germany.
Osimhen has attracted plenty of interest after an outstanding season in Naples, his 25 goals helping Luciano Spalletti's side to a place in the Champions League last-16 and an all but certain Serie A title. United are known admirers of the Nigerian, with Erik ten Hag eyeing a world-class goalscorer this summer.
But with No.9s set to be in high demand this summer, any move will face inevitable competition, with this most recent report suggesting Bayern's interest could prove decisive.
The report adds that Thomas Tuchel's side could handle the likely €100million-plus fee, while Osimhen 'can definitely imagine' joining the Bundesliga giants.

Newport boss reveals McNeill transfer wish
Newport manager Graham Coughlan admits he'd love to re-sign Charlie McNeill on loan again next season.
“We had to bring in young players in January and couldn’t do what some other clubs did but I don’t think anybody has signed better when you include Harry Charsley,” he told the South Wales Argus.
“The age and experience might count against them but they have been brilliant and I hope we can keep giving them the education and development they need to go back to their parent clubs and compete for the first team after massive growth.
“But I wouldn’t say no to having them here again next season if Middlesbrough, Manchester United and Stoke were open to that. I will pursue them for sure.”
