And insiders insist goalkeeper De Gea will be the overwhelming choice in the first-team squad.

They claim it’s less of a “rebellion” against current skipper Maguire.

More of a vote of confidence, how much respect and trust they have in the 31-year-old Spaniard.

Ex-boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer surprised some when he named Maguire captain within six months of arriving from Leicester after Ashley Young left for Inter Milan.

The 29-year-old England centre-back is very proud of the job.

But some within the club feel it’s an unfair burden and may even have affected his form.

Cristiano Ronaldo will also be in the running.

But Carrington sources insist De Gea is the one who can do most to mend a broken dressing room.

The Spanish goalkeeper became increasingly open towards the end of last season as interim boss Ralf Rangnick’s results began to deteriorate.

De Gea also impressed team-mates and coaches by returning to training early last summer to reclaim the job from Dean Henderson – favorite who was first choice last year.

He has one year left on his £375,000-a-week contract, with United also holding another 12-month option.

However, Old Trafford bosses believe he has many years left at the peak of his powers and believe the captaincy job could even see him retiring at the club.
