Darren Fletcher could be a surprise inclusion for Manchester United's Champions League squad.

Fletcher is waiting to see if he will be handed a surprise spot in Sir Alex Ferguson's squad for the Champions League.

United must submit a 25-man pool to UEFA on Monday night and though Fletcher has not played a competitive game since November because of illness, there are two places up for grabs in Ferguson's squad.

One of the spare places in the squad will probably go to a striker such as Federico Macheda or Bebe to cover for the predicted absence of the injured Wayne Rooney.
