David de Gea is described as the favorite to be chosen as the next Man United captain, The Sun reports.
It’s claimed that Erik ten Hag wants the players to vote on who will wear the armband in the next season.
Harry Maguire has been the captain since January 2020, just six months after joining United from Leicester.
If De Gea is picked ahead of him as the next captain, it wouldn’t be a ‘rebellion’ against Maguire but a show of respect for the keeper – who has already won the club’s Players’ Player of the Year award for this past campaign.
Referring to sources inside the dressing room, The Sun claims that the players are certain De Gea can do most to unite the team after a difficult season.
The Spaniard has been really open about the situation in the team, repeatedly calling on his teammates to step up.
