Tyrone Mings is up for the battle to keep his starting spot in the England team.
Asked if it was a matter of time that Maguire would replace him, Mings said: "I don't think I am qualified enough to answer that because I don't pick the team.
"All I can do, and I know this is extremely boring, is train well and play well if called upon to try and throw my hat in the ring for a starting position ever when he is fit.
"I would hate to answer that question because I would hate to have the selection issues that the manager has."
He added: "It is a little bit bizarre bearing in mind how much credit in the bank Harry has got and what a fantastic defender he is.
"But at the same time there is absolutely competition for places and I think he's somebody that I look up to in terms of a centre-back, and somebody that is so consistent with a lot of pressure on his shoulders being captain of Man United and being one of the main players for England.
"He's a person I take a lot of inspiration from. So to be mentioned in the same breath of as him is a compliment in itself."
