He featured on Sunday’s 4-2 thrashing of Leeds United and was substituted by Raphael Varane late into the second half of the game.
He is rumoured to be gunning for the captaincy of the club and has held talks with interim manager, Ralf Rangnick.
Rangnick dismissed the rumour and said Maguire remains captain.
