Ole Gunnar Solskjær has confirmed Harry Maguire as Manchester United’s new full-time captain, six months after his £80m move from Leicester.

Maguire will take the armband from Ashley Young, who is expected to complete his move to Inter, pending a medical on Friday.

“Harry has come in and been wearing the captain’s armband and he will keep wearing it,” said Solskjær. “He has been a leader in the group and I have been not surprised but impressed with his leadership skills.”

Talking about Young’s impending switch, Solskjær explained why the former England international had been granted permission to leave.
