United played out their eighth goalless draw of the season on Sunday afternoon and tensions boiled over.
Fred is said to have told Maguire to start driving forward more in the 72nd minute as United searched for a winner.
It then saw the England international quip back with a remark of "F**king idiot" to the midfielder.
Manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer heard the exchange and was asked about it at full-time.
Solskjaer remarked that he didn't want a team full of 'nice guys' and saw no issue with his players mildly disagreeing.
We have got a group that demands a lot of each other," he explained per Manchester Evening News. "The standard is high, both in training and the game.
"It's not just about being a nice guy and cajoling. We demand maximum effort.
"I was really proud in the second half how strong we looked, how we dominated the possession, the regains, how quickly we won the ball back and never felt they threatened our goal in the second half.
"But we missed a little bit today, an extra spark to win the game."
Bruno Fernandes had the best chance to win the game, but it was a far cry from December's 6-2 meeting at Old Trafford.
Solskjaer joked prior to the game it wouldn't be a 0-0 between the sides and he was quick to address his comments.
He told Sky Sports: "There's no guarantees in football that's for sure. I thought we played well, dominated the second half, just didn't have the ball to fall correctly for us in the moments we had.
"When two teams meet you create problems, you solve problems, they give you things to think about and we made them adjust to us. We put a really big shift in.
"I have seen Leeds run over teams in the second half and it was the opposite.
"You don't lose momentum, we are disappointed not to win but the boys have a lot of respect for Leeds. This is not going to be something we look back on as derailing our season."
