Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer believes Harry Maguire can be a captain of the club in the future.
The Red Devils have been accused of lacking leadership in recent years with Ashley Young taking the armband from Antonio Valencia this summer.
But Solskjaer now feels he has a long-term answer in summer signing Maguire who is already excelling at Old Trafford.
The Norwegian manager told Sky Sports: “Maguire has already been in my head thinking about him as a future captain. He’s a leader on the pitch, he defends really well. Off the pitch a top, top professional. He voices his opinion before training and in the dressing room.
“I’m very pleased on the money we spent on him. He’s one looking like we can give the band too, yeah.
“I’ve already thought of him as a future captain [of Manchester United], he’s a leader in the field. He has not asked yet, but it’s in my head.”
