Having conceded 54 goals in the Premier League last season, it’s been no surprise to see Ole Gunnar Solskjaer look far and wide for some defensive reinforcements to his creaking Manchester United back-line.
Reports in recent weeks have suggested the Red Devils are intent on pushing through a mammoth deal for Leicester’s Harry Maguire, but one man within the club who has seemingly flown under the radar has been Axel Tuanzebe.
The 21-year-old centre-back spent last season on loan at Aston Villa in the Championship and it had been claimed that Dean Smith’s side were very much interested in bringing him back to Villa Park.

However, an update from The Daily Mail has now revealed United boss Solskjaer is keen on giving Tuanzebe the chance to shine at Old Trafford and will be handed a fresh new deal.
After hearing the news, fans of the Manchester side took to Twitter to share their thoughts on the decision and many were understandably excited.
United supporters revealed that they were relieved Tuanzebe was finally going to be given the opportunity to prove his worth and declared that they were even happier at hearing how he would be taken on the club’s pre-season tour.

This is great news. Hopefully Ole can see if he is ready for the premier league and then decide if he needs another loan or if he can be a good rotational option. #mufc
