Harry Maguire has established himself as ‘leader’ in Manchester United’s dressing room, according to reports.

The England international impressed in the 4-0 victory over Chelsea in the opening Premier League weekend after his record-breaking £80million move to Old Trafford.

The Sheffield-born centre-back has 20 England caps and played every game of the 2018 World Cup campaign as England made the semi-final.

Paul Pogba has come up with ‘The Beast’ nickname for Maguire and The Sun claims he has ‘had a massive impact in the dressing room’ just two weeks after arriving.

A United source told The Sun:

“He’s the leader United have missed for some time.

“The players were immediately excited by the prospect of him arriving.

“He’s given the back-four renewed confidence, not just by his ability but his words.

“The team feel stronger defending set-pieces now.”

The Red Devils only kept two clean sheets at home all season last campaign and with a back four of Maguire, Victor Lindelof, Luke Shaw and Aaron Wan-Bissaka, they are hoping to vastly improve that record.
