If Harry Maguire continues to receive limited playing time under manager Erik ten Hag, the Manchester United defender has threatened to leave the Premier League club in January.
Prior to the start of the new season, Maguire was replaced as captain by Ten Hag.
Despite this, he was given the opportunity to start in the league against Brentford due to several other defenders being injured.
In that game, Maguire played a crucial role in Scott McTominay’s winning goal, resulting in a 2-1 victory for the team.
However, once Raphael Varane and Lisandro Martinez recover from their injuries, the 30-year-old likely faces being relegated back to the substitute bench.
“I am not going to sit here all my life and play once a month. If it carries on I am sure myself and the club will sit down and have a chat about things.
“It’s not my decision whether I start the next game for United or not. In a couple of weeks, I’ll go back and find out,” Maguire said, ahead of England’s double-header against Australia on Friday and Italy on Tuesday.
