Tuanzebe has found first-team opportunities hard to come by, having only made 5 professional league appearances for Aston Villa. In spite of this though, it seems his parent club view Aston Villa manager Steve Bruce as the ideal candidate to develop the England Under-21 international.
Bruce is believed to be eager to retain the young defender's services and obviously has a great repour with United, having made over 400 appearances for the club during his playing career.
It seems Tuanzebe’s future will definitely lie away from Old Trafford next season though, as sources from within the club hinted, as quoted by the Sun report:
“Axel could stay at Aston Villa. It’s not dependent on promotion at all.
“The club are still undecided but that’s what they’d like him to do. We know Villa are keen on him.
“He is expected to go on the US pre-season tour before Jose makes his final decision over him.”
Manchester United are very proud of their academy record that has seen a homegrown player feature in every season for the past 81 years. Tuanzebe is being tipped to continue the trend and is expected to have a big future at the club.
Having already amassed eight professional appearances for them, the Red Devils well be sure to keep a close eye on him, wherever he plies his trade next season.
