And Solskjaer says he has already seen enough of the defender to know he has all the attributes of a natural captain.

Solskjaer said: “He's a definitely a character and personality that can be captain of a big club.

“He's a leader in performances, stature and behaviour, he's a character you'd like to follow.

“Some are technical leaders, some are leaders by voice, he's got the lot.”

Maguire and his United team-mates turned up for training this morning with manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer still unsure who he will have available this weekend.

The club entertain the Foxes having taken just five points from the opening four matches - United's worse start to a season for 23 years.

And now they have been hit by an injury crisis which looks set to rob Solskjaer of half his first team.

Paul Pogba has been ruled out through injury, joining the already sidelined Luke Shaw and Anthony Martial.

But there are also doubts over the fitness of Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Jesse Lingard who both pulled out of international duty.

The back problem for Wan-Bissaka threatens to make him miss his first game of the season.

And Lingard still has to prove his fitness following the injury which forced him out of the England set-up.
