Harry Maguire has been stripped off as captain of Manchester United.

Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag has decided to strip Harry Maguire of the captaincy. This decision has sparked a wave of speculation among fans about who will take up the crucial leadership role at one of the world’s most prestigious football clubs. Here are three potential candidates who could replace Maguire as the captain of Manchester United:

1. Bruno Fernandes: Since his arrival at Old Trafford, Bruno Fernandes has been a driving force for Manchester United. The Portuguese midfielder has not only displayed exceptional skill and creativity on the field but has also demonstrated strong leadership qualities making him the frontrunner for the captain’s armband. Fernandes has the ability to inspire his teammates and lead by example, making him a natural choice to take over as the captain.


2. Raphael Varane: Although he is new to the Manchester United squad, Raphael Varane brings a wealth of experience to the table. As a World Cup-winning defender with Real Madrid, Varane has proven his leadership abilities in high-pressure situations. The Frenchman’s calmness, composure, and ability to organize the defense make him a strong contender for the captaincy.

3. Casemiro: While a Manchester United player since last year, Casemiro has consistently showcased his leadership qualities at Real Madrid. The Brazilian midfielder is known for his tenacity, work rate, and ability to dictate play from the center of the pitch.
