With Antonio Valencia having left the club, Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskajer is set to name Ashley Young as the next club captain.
There were rumors of Paul Pogba being handed the armband to persuade him to stay at Old Trafford after he was linked with a move to Real Madrid in the summer transfer window. David De Gea and Chris Smalling were also reported to be contenders for the captaincy. It is believed that Young is not guaranteed a place in the starting XI next season, so Solskjaer is looking to appoint a vice-captain for when he isn't on the pitch.
