Los Blancos' No. 1 goalkeeper missed the first leg of the round of 16 European tie with a broken thumb last week, but he is among the traveling party for the trip to Old Trafford.

Iker Casillas has been named in Real Madrid's 24-man squad to face Manchester United in the Champions League on Tuesday.

The goalkeeper had been sidelined since Jan. 23 after he fractured a bone in his left hand during Los Blancos' Copa del Rey quarterfinal victory over Valencia. The Spain international resumed ball training on Friday, though, and has now been deemed fit enough to participate in the second leg of his side's round of 16 European tie at Old Trafford.

Elsewhere, defender Nacho will join up with the rest of the squad late due to the 23-year-old having to prepare for the Castilla team's Segunda Division clash with Ponferradina later on Sunday.


Real Madrid squad to face Manchester United:
Casillas, Adan, Diego Lopez, Jesus; Ramos, Arbeloa, Marcelo, Albiol, Varane, Pepe, Coentrao, Carvalho; Modric, Alonso, Khedira, Ozil, Kaka, Callejon, Di Maria, Essien; Cristiano Ronaldo, Benzema, Higuain, Morata.
