Manchester United face Villarreal in the Europa League final tonight and could take home a lucrative prize pot.

Manchester United could win their first piece of silverware in four years tonight when they face Villarreal in the Europa League final. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s have travelled to Gdansk to play the La Liga outfit.

Winning a European title would mark an impressive campaign for United.

They were confirmed as runners-up to rivals Manchester City in the Premier League with a match to spare. However, the Red Devils limped over the line with injuries and a loss of form affecting results.

The 2-1 final day win against Wolves and a 3-1 victory over Aston Villa on May 9 were their only successes in their final six games.

Their run-in included a goalless draw against Leeds United, a 1-1 stalemate with already relegated Fulham, and a 4-2 defeat against a resurgent Liverpool, who finished third after a rampant end to the campaign.

But United now have the chance to end the season positively.

Knocked out of the Champions League group stage following an unfortunate draw that saw them play Paris Saint-Germain, RB Leipzig and Istanbul Basaksehir, United have stormed through the Europa League knockout rounds.

Real Sociedad were swept aside in the last-32, before AC Milan were trumped in the last-16.

Victory over Granada set up a semi-final with Roma and an enthralling two legs ended 8-5 in United’s favour.

A lucrative pot of money awaits the winner in Poland.

The Old Trafford outfit have already pocketed a combined €5.5million (£4.76m) for their success in the competition so far.

tonight’s victor will travel home with an extra €8.5m (£7.36m) banked. The loser will receive €4.5m (£3.9m).

Solskjaer has challenged his players to ensure they win their first trophy since they won the same competition in 2017.

“We have five wins in Europa and we’ve lost twice to Barcelona. These are big nights for us, it might be the stepping stone for something better to come,” the Norwegian said on Tuesday.

“It’s a bright future, this team is a young team, it’s a team we’ve rebuilt over the last few years. Hopefully, this is the start of something more.

“Sir Alex is with us we know the 26th of May is Sir Matt’s birthday, but when players sign to play for Man United, they sign to win trophies.

“They accept the challenge of being the best, because this is the best club in the world so that’s the pleasure of the pressure of Man United.”

Midfielder Bruno Fernandes, who has scored five goals in the competition this season, revealed that he joined the club in January 2020 to experience winning silverware.

The Spaniard said: “We come to this club because we want to win trophies.

“I think every player knows you come here to fight for trophies and to be a better player. The pressure to win is there, but pressure is good for me.

“It’s important for us to win trophies. As players we want to win, we know we represent a big club and trophies are part of this club.

“It’s important of course, everyone knows that. The most important for us is doing what we have to do.”
