Goalkeeper Iker Casillas is back in the Real Madrid squad for the Champions League last-16 second leg at Manchester United following injury.

Casillas, 31, has not played since the 5-0 win at Valencia on 20 January due to a hand problem.

But he has been included in Jose Mourinho's 24-man squad for Tuesday's match at Old Trafford.

They drew the first leg 1-1 at the Bernabeu, with Cristiano Ronaldo cancelling out Danny Welbeck's strike.

Mourinho rested several players for Saturday's 2-1 win over Barcelona at the Bernabeu.

Real will train at Manchester City's Etihad Stadium on Monday as they step up their preparations for the match.
