The Argentine star has produced solid performances for The Red Devils in Europe this term, but a knee injury has sidelined him in recent weeks.
The former Lazio man was keen to make the Santiago Bernabeu clash with the European Champions, but failed a fitness test.
Red Devils chief Sir Alex Ferguson has seen Roy Keane return from a hamstring injury and will in all probability lead the team against los meringues.
With Veron out, Nicky Butt and Phil Neville will vie for the central midfield position alongside Keane, with England ace Paul Scholes set to play in a more advanced role.
