Maguire’s reaction comes less than 24 hours after the report got published by The Mirror.
A source told the newspaper: ‘Originally, Ronaldo asked the players to support Harry. But the problem is that the manager wants Ronaldo to mentor the younger ones.
‘This has now left Harry in an isolated spot, as he’s the captain but now he must follow whatever Ronaldo says, to keep everything fine.’
Ronaldo has been working well the younger players as instructed by Coach Ralf Rangnick.
Maguire is said to feel ‘isolated’ by Ronaldo’s role in the Manchester United dressing room.
Ronaldo has previously supported Maguire in public but it has reduced over the last few weeks.
