Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has singled out Axel Tuanzebe for praise following the 1-0 win over Inter Milan.
The legendary Norwegian watched on as his side ensured their winning run continues in their third pre-season fixture so far.
United’s opposition was a step up from their previous friendlies against Leeds United and Perth Glory but their domination continued.
Inter were lucky to have not lost by more while the likes of Tuanzebe ensured they wouldn’t have any luck scoring either.
The powerful Englishman enjoyed a successful loan spell at Aston Villa last season and it appears Solskjaer is keen on keeping him on board this time around.
Solskjær: "He's [Tuanzebe] got a future at #mufc, of course he has. Today was a test for him, we know he can play at that level, that's why he didn't pay against Leeds. Axel is the future of this club." #mulive

In fact, if Axel remains at Old Trafford this season then it raises the question marks over many of the club’s defenders’ futures.
Ole is already said to be keen on Harry Maguire and should that transfer successfully occur, that will mean he will have seven players capable of playing at centre-back.
It will be interesting to see who the former striker keeps and who he moves on but it Tuanzebe can rest assured after being rightfully praised.
