United in Italy for Euro final

Rio Ferdinand and Dimitar Barbatov arrive in Rome

Manchester United have arrived in Rome, Italy and are getting ready for Wednesday's Champions League final.

The Premier League champions will take on Spanish side Barcelona in search of their fourth trophy of the season.

Thousands of fans from both sides have begun arriving in the country ahead of the big game.

There's good news for United fans - it looks like defender Rio Ferdinand will be fit to play after he's spent three weeks out with a calf injury.

Barcelona's Thierry Henry and Andres Iniesta also seem to have recovered from their injuries and should be fit to play.
