Manchester United boss Erik ten Hag plans to keep Harry Maguire at the club next season but has given the defender no assurances about the remaining captain.

The England international suffered a disastrous drop in form last season and was vilified by fans for his poor performances.

Maguire, an £80million signing from Leicester City in 2019, was named club captain just six months after his time at the Theater of Dreams but felt undermined following the arrival of Cristiano Ronaldo and Raphael Varane.

The defender had been worried about his future at the club but the Daily Mail say he is in Ten Hag’s plans for next season.

Ten Hag believes in Maguire’s ability to play from defense while believing he can fix his confidence issues.

However, the Dutchman has not yet decided whether Maguire will remain captain of the club and he is considering appointing a new skipper.

Cristiano Ronaldo, David De Gea and Bruno Fernandes are all contenders should Maguire lose the captaincy.

United are yet to make a signing this summer, with the club focused on signing Barcelona midfielder Frenkie de Jong.

Christian Eriksen has been offered a contract but the Dane is considering offers from Tottenham and Brentford.
