Manchester United players are all set to vote for their next captain for the upcoming campaign. The new era of Man United under Erik Hen Tag is all set to witness various changes in the club, which will also decide that on which player will be the senior first team’s newly made captain. Reports from the Sun state that Erik Ten is primarily happy to on his team’s squad to vote on who they would primarily like to lead the Red Devils next season.
Harry Maguire has been the captain of Man United at present, and the English center-back is expected to be forced to relinquish his duties as the skipper. Maguire’s time as the captain of Manchester United has hugely been disappointing hence the decision for a new captain has been taken.
However, sources state that Ralf Rangnick, the ex-interim manager refused to strip Maguire of the armband, as it has always felt like it will indeed be a matter of time until the former defender of Leceister City will give up on his responsibilities. Sources also verify that ahead of the decision, which will be taken by the squad’s votes, it is highly expected that David de Gea and Cristiano Ronaldo are the frontrunners, with the Spaniard set to secure the highest number of votes.
David de Gea as the captain of Manchester United?
For a long time, David de Gea has been playing in the first team of Manchester United. The 31-year-old came to Los Blancos in 2011 and has become a highly important member of the Old Trafford now. Also, David de Gea won the player of the season award for Manchester United for the 2021-22 season, for which he is a strong contender too. It is to be seen if he really gets the maximum votes, and if yes, how does he performs as the captain of the Red Devils.
