Robin Van Persie is suffering from a groin strain, and has not traveled to Germany with the rest of the Manchester United squad.

Van Persie missed the weekend's match against Cardiff with a groin injury, not the toe injury that has been hampering him. He'll be a doubt for the trip to Spurs at the weekend.

Manchester City officially confirmed that winger Jesus Navas will leave the club this summer.

Navas joined the club in 2013 from Sevilla and went on to make more than 100 appearances in four years. The Spaniard made 24 appearances in the Premier League this season, mostly from the bench, and found a niche as a right-back. The 31-year-old has been linked with a return to Sevilla as well as a move to AS Roma. Said director of football Txiki Begiristain: "Working with Jesus has been a pleasure. His hard work, dedication, professionalism and desire to win have been apparent every single day. He showed his versatility numerous times this season, operating at full-back and doing so with distinction. I wish him all the very best with his next move."

Gael Clichy's Manchester City contract has expired will not be renewed according to an announcement from the club.

Clichy's move from the Emirates to the Etihad was one of the early moves that City made as they started to build a squad that could contend for Premier League and Champions League honors. While he spent most of his City tenure battling Aleksandar Kolarov for the starting left back spot, he did manage to collect two Premier League winners medals and feature in 138 matches for the club. He could still catch on elsewhere in the Premier League, perhaps a little farther down the table and be a productive player. He will be available on a free transfer this summer.

Manchester City goalkeeper Willy Caballero was among the latest casualties as the club cleans house this summer.

The Spaniard originally entered the season looking like the No. 3 keeper, but Joe Hart went on loan to Torino while Claudio Bravo disappointed early on, leading to Caballero earning the starting role. Despite making 27 appearances this season, the club decided it would not offer the 35-year-old a new deal with his contract set to expire this summer. "It’s been a privilege to play for Manchester City," Caballero said. "From the first day I arrived, everyone at the Club has made me feel welcome and I will always be grateful to them. To win the League Cup in such dramatic circumstances was special and it’s a day I will never forget."

Manchester City will be busy in the transfer market this summer following a series of cuts in defense.

The club announced on Thursday that Bacary Sagna and Gael Clichy would join Pablo Zabaleta, Jesus Navas and Willy Caballero as expiring contracts who will not be re-signed. Clichy announced his departure earlier in the week, while Sagna's exit leaves the club with only four senior defenders. Said Sagna: "It has been a privilege to play for this football club. I have enjoyed every moment of my City career and will look back on my time at City fondly. I would like to thank the staff, players and fans for making my three years so memorable."

Bacary Sagna will be joining Gael Clichy, Jesus Navas, and Willy Caballero as out of contract players not returning to the Etihad next season.

Following his former Arsenal teammate Gael Clichy from the Emirates to the Etihad three seasons later, Bacary Sagna wasn't as fortunate as his fellow former Gunner. Sagna appeared 53 times for City but he joined following their most recent Premier League title. Unlike Clichy who won the league twice at City, Sagna's quest to add a title after Arsenal frustration went unfulfilled. He is now a free agent able to sign with any club although the market for 34-year-old outside backs is probably not a massive one, at least not if Sagna is looking for a starting role.

Despite starting down the stretch for the 3rd place finishers, Willy Caballero will not be returning to the Etihad next season after his contract expires over the summer.

The club is clearly looking to clear salary and older players from the squad as they continue to remake the team to suit Pep Guardiola's preferred style of play. With Joe Hart still under club control, Claudio Bravo signing a significant deal last summer, and Pep seeming discontent with all of his goalkeepers, the writing was on the wall as Caballero's contract expired. There have been few, if any, rumors about whether he is likely to land in the Premier League or elsewhere for next season.

Apparently there is only one for one Jesus at Manchester City as the club has announced that Jesus Navas will not be resigned after his contract ran out this summer.

The Spanish international has never quite lived up to the high expectations that accompanied his arrival at the Etihad. Never a prolific goalscorer, his assist and chance creation record in Spain for Sevilla was far superior to what he was able to achieve in the Premier League. Across multiple managers, Navas' pace and effort were never in doubt but his end product, be that a shot or a cross, never came around on a consistent basis. He leaves City having scored 4 goals in 118 appearances. It's hard to imagine that there will be many takers in the Premier League even on a free.

Andros Townsend has went under the knife in an attempt to cure a persistent and ongoing Achilles problem.

The Crystal Palace winger struggled throughout the latter part of the campaign, with his workload being carefully monitored between matches, and a decision has now been taken to have surgery to ensure he is fully fit for the start of the new season. Townsend, who was heavily linked with a move back to his former club Newcastle during the January transfer window, was pivotal in helping the Eagles retain their top-flight status. He will now miss the upcoming England internationals against Scotland and France. Townsend won the Premier League’s Carling Goal of the Month award for March for his sensational 80-yard solo effort at the Hawthorns while he was instrumental in the 3-0 win over Arsenal. Townsend has enjoyed his most successful season to date, certainly in terms of league minutes played [2528], and the 25-year-old will be looking to build upon his successful start at Selhurst Park.

Some sections of the press believe that Kieran Gibbs remains a doubt for the FA Cup final despite a return to full training.

The left sided defender missed the win over Everton due to a thigh strain but it was thought that Gibbs would be fine for Wembley, and photographs from the training ground certainly imply that. However, a number of media outlets suggest he is still not 100%. Arsène Wenger will need to manage his squad carefully ahead of the showdown with Chelsea as several player’s availability hang in the balance. The Arsenal manager "does not know" if Shkodran Mustafi [concussion] will be ready "I have to listen to the medical people" while Laurent Koscielny is suspended and Gabriel "is out for six to eight weeks" after damaging his medial knee ligament. "He’s out until the beginning of August." Alexis Sanchez [hamstring] is said to be alright: "He needs to go through some tests [but] knowing the player, knowing his character and knowing his commitment to the club, he’ll make absolutely everything to be fit for Saturday."

Marten de Roon has admitted he wants to continue playing at the "highest level" after Middlesbrough's relegation, casting doubt over the midfielder's long-term future at the Riverside.

The tough-tackling Dutchman joined Middlesbrough from Italian outfit Atalanta last summer for £12m and was one of the club's top performers in his debut Premier League campaign, scoring five goals while playing in a more advanced role. The likes of Everton and West Brom have already been linked with the 26-year-old, who is under contract at Boro until 2020, but has admitted that staying in the top-flight is a top priority. "Of course, you want to play at the highest level so we're going to see what's happening in the summer, he told Fox Sports. "But for now I'm still at Middlesbrough and I have a contract. If I play next year, we are going to try to come back as soon as possible." Should de Roon be made available, it wouldn't be a surprise to see him back in the Premier League next season.

Manchester United beat Ajax 2-0 in Stockholm to claim the Europa League for the first time in the club's history.

The victory means that United have secured a berth in the group stages of next season's Champions League, ultimately rendering Jose Mourinho's first season in charge as a success. United stood off Ajax and prevented them playing their direct, free-flowing game by creating a classic Mourinho barrier. Their rigid defensive system blocked the young Dutch side and Ajax's attempts to play over the lines were thwarted by United's superior physical attributes. Marouane Fellaini was particularly impressive in this regard. Pogba put United in control after just 18 minutes, benefiting from a fortuitous deflection. Mkhitaryan extinguished any residual hopes of a comeback after half-time with a snap overhead kick from three yards while Lingard fluffed a late one-on-one. Jose Mourinho triumphs again in a big game thanks to a bespoke plan for the big day.
