Cahill has endured a hard season on the pitch and is by no means a certainty to start Saturday's final. There have also been a few surprises along the way, most notably Scott McTominay's involvement. The final game will be played this Saturday, May 19 at one of the iconic stadia in England, the Wembley Stadium.
Mourinho is expected to speak to the press for the final time at United's hotel on Friday afternoon, following the same routine as against Tottenham for the semi-final.
Mourinho was correct in that United were not ready to win the Champions League after failing to qualify for the competition in three of the past four years, but the manner of the limp exit to Spain's seventh-best team was a major setback.

"He gave me my first start against Shrewsbury Town and I just remember it was a case of always having to work hard in order to earn your spot in the side", the centre-back revealed. "I'm really looking forward to the experience and will be very proud to be representing all of the players who have scored in this season's competition".
"I wanted to be on the pitch to help my team mates".
"The most important thing is to stay concentrated and make sure we win it".
"Because I nearly do that all the time (win a trophy), when I don't do it, you (the media) kill me", said Mourinho on the prospect of going without a trophy in his second season at Old Trafford. I hope it'll be a good game with Chelsea as the victor.
Super Eagles and Chelsea forward Victor Moses says he has forgotten the disappointment of past year in the FA Cup and is determined to help the Blues sing victory song on Saturday.
"But, it's a final, it's a big game and I feel that normally in those games you shouldn't have to motivate players to play football because we do what we love and we always have to do it 120 per cent".
