Blow for Dean Smith as Axel Tuanzebe rules out summer transfer

Axel Tuanzebe who was loaned to Aston Villa last season believes he is ready for first team appearances at Old Trafford.

Tuanzebe helped Aston Villa get promoted from the Championship to the EPL and he believes he has improved in his performance over the years.

And to say the truth, his impact was felt in the Red Devils squad during their 1-0 win over Inter Milan in their Pre-season tour.

Tuanzebe, though linked with a return to Villa,  is hoping to get a chance even as Manchester United are already trying to sign Harry Maguire from Leicester City.

The 21-year-old also believes since coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has taken interest in youngsters, he might as well have a fair crack of the whip.

“The manager puts faith in young players and I’m ready to play,” Tuanzebe told The National in Singapore after the game.

“I got another 60 [minutes] under my belt and I’m going to keep going. My season last year showed that I am a much better player than a year ago. Having a good coach to support me as a player and a person helped.

“I’m more mature, my decision making is better, my physicality, building myself in the game and being a senior player.

“I’m ready to play for Manchester United – definitely.”

He also stated that he is now more mature and has been able to build himself physically and mentally to play in the senior team.

Coach Solskjaer seems to agree with Tuanzebe as he hinted that the 21-year-old is the future of Manchester United.

Tuanbeze played alongside Man Utd new boy, Aaron Wan-Bissaka on Saturday.

We will have to wait to see if the Red Devils will sign Harry Maguire before considering whether the defender would get more game time or be loaned back to the Midlands.
