Odds released on who will captain Manchester United 2019-20

Paul Pogba Manchester United

David de Gea is the bookies current favourite

Bookmakers PaddyPower have released odds on who will captain Manchester United for their opening Premier League fixture against Chelsea on 11 August.

David de Gea is current favourite at 11/10, while Ashley Young - who captained the side for parts of last season - is priced at 4/1. Want away midfielder Paul Pogba, who's future at the club remains uncertain amid interest from Real Madrid and Juventus, is second-favourite at 9/4.

The France international wore the armband for the Red Devils towards the back-end of last term, though following his recent behaviour - which has included stating that he would not be against a move away from the club - it is hugely unlikely that he will be gifted the honour of skippering the side again.

Defenders Chris Smalling and Victor Lindelof are priced at odds of 16/1 and 20/1 respectively, while midfielder Nemanja Matic finds himself at 33/1 to take control of the armband.

Lingard at 100/1, anyone?

21-year-old forward Marcus Rashford - who has just signed a new contract with the club worth a reported £200,000-a-week - is priced at 50/1, as is young Scotland international Scott McTominay, who impressed when called upon last season. Jesse Lingard is a whopping 100/1 to be handed the captain's responsibilities against Chelsea.

It is not just current players that PaddyPower have priced up for this particular bet, though, with potential transfer targets also getting a mention in the specialist market.

Leicester City's Harry Maguire is as short as 16/1 to skipper the side in just under six week's time, which is quite frankly absurd considering a deal bringing him to the north west now looks extremely unlikely, after the Foxes' £75m valuation of their prized asset.

Ajax's teenage sensation Matthijs de Ligt is also in the running, priced at 40/1 - the same as current defender Phil Jones.

Sporting Lisbon's  Bruno Fernandes is 33/1 - the same as Matic - to take control of the armband against the Blues. It's being reported that United have now agree personal terms with the 24-year-old ahead of a potential transfer, though it is incredibly difficult to see him being handed the captaincy straight away, if ever at all.

Our money's on de Gea, safe pair of hands.
