However, there is no place in the Spain squad for United's record signing Rodrigo who has only recently returned from a groin injury.

Spain will take in three World Cup qualifiers in the space of seven days starting with the home clash against Greece on Thursday, March 25.

An away fixture against Georgia follows just two days later before a home game against Kosovo the following Wednesday.
