One does not need to be a genius to see that Axel Tuanzebe is in Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s first-team plans for next season and he’s just played a part in Aston Villa’s return to the Premier League.
Dean Smith’s side has just beaten Derby 2-1 at Wembley to win the Championship play-off final.
Tuanzebe made 30 appearances for Villa this season and he’s been solid ever since.
Axel Tuanzebe’s game by numbers vs. Derby County:
100% tackles won
78% pass accuracy
5 ball recoveries

Now Manchester United fans want him to return to Old Trafford and be part of Ole Gunnar’s first team. Will he be back?
It’s time for Axel Tuanzebe to step up to first team football with Manchester United. Would prefer to see him develop than watching Jones and Smalling take a step backwards every season. #mufc

If Axel Tuanzebe isn’t in consideration for even bench for Manchester United next season, I will seriously start to worry… and he should leave if he isn’t.

If we don’t sign Koudabily or De Ligt then we MUST start Axel Tuanzebe next season. Kid is something special!
