Leicester City defender Jonny Evans has backed his former teammate Harry Maguire to become Manchester United’s captain in the future.

Maguire spent two productive seasons with Leicester prior to becoming the world’s most expensive defender when moving to United in an £80m deal in August on the eve of the season.

The 26-year-old will come up against familiar faces on Saturday when Leicester City travel to Old Trafford looking to build upon their unbeaten start in the Premier League.

Maguire has enjoyed a decent start to his United career and Evans believes he has what it takes to play for the club over the next decade and become a leader on the pitch.

‘I think Harry will be at United for eight, nine or 10 years. When it comes to that point, I think people will look back at the fee and say it was a bargain,’ he said.

‘I’ve been really impressed with Harry. I think he’ll go on to be a real success at United and he could go on to be their captain – there’s no doubt about that.’

Evans knows what it takes to play at Old Trafford having started his career at Manchester United and played 198 times for the club prior to joining West Brom in 2015.

And the Northern Ireland international believes that Maguire’s playing style is perfectly suited to what Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is trying to build at the club.

‘I only spent a season playing with him, but it felt like we formed a good relationship, on and off the pitch. He’s a fantastic player and he suits everything United are looking for,’ he said.

‘Not just in his playing style, but how he behaves off the pitch and the personality he can bring. He likes to build games out from the back, start attacks and show his personality on the ball.’
