Yet further reports of rifts between Harry Maguire and his Manchester United teammates have emerged this week.
This is not the first time it has been suggested that Maguire has had issues with his teammates in 2021/22.
Just last month it was claimed that Cristiano Ronaldo and the English international were embroiled in a power struggle over the United captaincy.
Maguire was labelled as reluctant to relinquish the armband for the rest of the season, as Ralf Rangnick aims to take the pressure off of him, for fear of losing the captaincy on a permanent basis.
Now, the Daily Mail are reporting that Maguire has upset a number of teammates this season both by openly blaming them on the pitch for making mistakes, and through some of his critical post-match comments to the media.

Harry Maguire to leave Manchester United?
The report goes on to cast further doubt on Maguire’s future at Old Trafford, too.
The Mail suggest that the former Leicester City star’s situation at Manchester United will come under even greater scrutiny in the summer with the Red Devils planning to sign a world-class centre-back.
And, though Ralf Rangnick has been publicly supportive of Maguire, it is understood that a new centre-back will be high on Man United’s list of targets ahead of next season.
Chelsea’s Antonio Rudiger and Barcelona’s Ronald Araujo are named as potential options.
