Axel Tuanzebe and Timothy Fosu-Mensah to join Manchester United pre-season tour: report

Manchester United young duo Axel Tuanzebe and Timothy Fosu-Mensah are set to join the club’s pre-season tour in the United States of America according to reports.

The pair are currently not a part of the first team though they’re highly rated by the club’s backroom staff and will have an opportunity to prove their credentials this summer.

Tuanzebe is on loan at Aston Villa while Fosu-Mensah is with Crystal Palace with Jose Mourinho deeming it necessary they both get match-time.

However, the Portuguese manager is keen to see whether they’re ready for first team football next season and will test them in the pre-season tour.

Mourinho will be without the majority of his stars as they will be hopefully featuring for their respective countries in the World Cup.

This will give a chance for others to impress and there’s already been talk of Timothy in particular being a part of the squad next season.

The Dutchman has impressed away from his parent club and was reported to be Antonio Valencia‘s successor for the right-back spot.

There’s certainly a case for things to turn out that way though there’s a little less hope for Axel as there’s too much competition in the centre-back positions.
