Rio Ferdinand thinks Harry Maguire should be looking to leave Manchester United in January.

The Red Devils defender has made only three Premier League starts this season, with Luke Shaw preferred to him at centre-back in the wins over Nottingham Forest and Wolves following the World Cup.

Maguire was impressive for his country in Qatar, but remains out of favour with United boss Erik ten Hag

Former United defender Ferdinand believes the former Leicester City man needs a new challenge.

“If I’m Harry Maguire, I’d be looking for a new club right now,” he told BT Sport. “You’ve seen what he’s done with England, he’s [been] impeccable.

“He’s faultless for them, the way he plays. He puts in good, solid performances. [But] at Manchester United, it hasn’t worked out for him.

“This new manager, by his team selection, has shown him he is not going to be one or the top two or three centre-backs in his squad.”

Maguire has struggled with illness since returning from England duty, but came off the bench against Wolves and Forest.

Lisandro Martinez will be expected to be restored to the team when he returns following Argentina’s World Cup triumph, while Raphael Varane and Victor Lindelof have both been given more opportunities than Maguire.
