The men were in Italy for the European game on 12 December
Five United fans were stabbed in a fight between rival fans before the Champions League match in Rome on Wednesday, 12 December.
Four supporters were jailed but had hoped to be allowed to return home before their appeal could be heard.
The Foreign Office said they would now remain in jail until their appeal.
A date for the appeal hearing has not yet been set.
The four men were formally charged with violent behaviour and resisting arrest.
None of the stabbed fans suffered serious injuries.
The judges presiding in the case met in Rome on Christmas Eve, but their decision was not known until Thursday.
Kyle Dillon, 23, from Mottram, near Hyde, and Richard Wimmer, 39, were each sentenced to two years and five months.
Nicholas Lucas, 18, and Michael Burk, 35, from Little Hulton, Salford, were jailed for two years and four months.
