Phil Jones was missing from Manchester United's open training session this morning.

Jones has been a fitness doubt after injuring his ankle in the FA Cup win over Reading a fortnight ago, although manager Sir Alex Ferguson has vowed to give the England man every chance of making the Champions League last-16 second-leg clash against Real Madrid.

Interestingly, United director Avi Glazer was present today as the build-up to one of the most eagerly-anticipated European games stepped up a notch.
