Harry Maguire has been pictured without crutches and a protective boot.

Maguire is attending the premiere of Sir Alex Ferguson’s documentary, Never Give In.

BBC Sport’s Simon Stone tweeted a picture of Maguire walking freely, joined by teammates Scott McTominay, Brandon Williams and Phil Jones.

Maguire suffered an ankle ligament injury against Aston Villa two weeks ago.

He has been out ever since and United are sweating on his fitness ahead of the Europa League final.

Maguire has been pictured using crutches and wearing a walking boot while watching United’s last three Premier League games from the sidelines.

 

While this latest picture (top) offers absolutely no guarantees for next week, it is an encouraging sign, when there have not been any up until now.

Maguire won’t play against Wolves this weekend as United look to rest him once again.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is hoping the club captain will get the all clear to travel to Gdansk, and then potentially come through a training session unscathed upon arrival.

United have struggled defensively in Maguire’s absence and getting him back, if fit, could be crucial to the team’s chances of winning silverware for the first time since 2017 next week.
