And Jose Mourinho is set to name an under-strength team against Spurs, who have already secured Champions League football for next season.
Mkhitaryan, Pogba, Axel Tuanzebe, Joel Pereira and Anthony Martial all arrived in Mercedes Benz motors.
While Rooney and Phil Jones opted for BMWs, with Michael Carrick and Daley Blind preferring Audis.
United have 12 days to prepare for the Europa League final on May 24 and Mourinho will most likely opt for a young team against Spurs.
That may mean the likes of Tuanzebe and Pereira get more game time, although David De Gea could play in goal as Mourinho has not used him in the Europa League.
Anthony Martial also did not get any game time against Celta in the second leg, after an underwhelming performance in the 2-0 defeat to Arsenal last weekend.
The United boss promised to make a lot of changes for the final league game of the season against Crystal Palace, with the Prem clash just three days before the Stockholm final.
Mourinho said: “Now Ajax thinks about the final, their league finished Sunday and they will have 12 days to prepare for the final and we have three Premier League matches to play.
“Hopefully Crystal Palace doesn’t need the last game, because in the last game I’m going to make a lot of changes, it doesn’t matter what happens.
“And nobody can blame us, because we have a final three days later.
“It’s an opportunity to win a trophy, it means an opportunity to be back in the Champions League.
“It means the opportunity to finish the season in the perfect way, because the final is the last match of the season.”
