Out of the Champions League, Manchester United will now face Ajax in the Europa League.

The Dutch team also crashed out of the Champions League and present a tough challenge for United, being one of the biggest names in the draw.

United will travel to the Amsterdam Arena on February 16 and will then host Ajax at Old Trafford on February 23.

And if we get past Ajax, they we will then face the winner of the Lokomotiv Moscow / Athletic Bilbao tie in the Round of 16, with these games to be played on March 8 and March 15.

Transfer muppet says time to scout Christian Eriksen and possibly Javi Martinez!

    Should be good. I’m interested in seeing the way Eriksen performs against us. If he impresses over the two legs, I wouldn’t be surprised if Fergie signed him…
