United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, however, will not be able to call on the services of his skipper for his team’s visit to the French capital.
Maguire, who has endured a scorching season for club and country, was reportedly left behind at Manchester as he suffered from a small muscle tear.
United have yet to confirm whether this is indeed the case, although the England defender has revealed he would miss the club’s clash with the Parisians due to injury.
“Disappointed to miss tomorrow’s game due to injury,” the world’s most expensive defender wrote on Instagram. “I will work hard to get back in shape as soon as possible.
“The start of our #ChampionsLeague #MUFC campaign. “
Portugal international Bruno Fernandes – the brightest light in what has so far been a dark season for United – will replace the Red Devils captain’s post in place of Maguire.
“For me, it’s an honor,” said the former Sporting Lisbon player. “I will be captain of my teammates and being captain of Manchester United is an important achievement for me.
“But I think everyone is the captain. Everyone must help and be a leader in their own way, leadership is different in each player. Tomorrow won’t be about me but the team.

“Leading is every day on the training ground, every game and everyone is doing their job to lead the team in the way they think is the best. ”
United will start their clash with the French champions in full confidence as they beat Thomas Tuchel’s side 3-1 in their last game of the 2018-19 season.
Solskjaer has fond memories of the round of 16 draw – which virtually guaranteed him the manager’s role on a permanent basis – but insists the result will have no bearing on Tuesday’s game.
“Of course (the 3-1 victory in 2019) is history for us, it’s in the past,” he said. “A great story, but it has no impact on this game. We are different, they are different and it is a different stage of the competition.
