Manchester United youngster Axel Tuanzebe reportedly won’t leave the club in search of more minutes elsewhere as he did last season with Aston Villa.
Fans feared the arrival of Harry Maguire could’ve meant the English prospect would be sent out on loan to continue his development.
Rather surprisingly, no centre-backs have been sold as of yet despite the summer transfer window slamming shut earlier today.
Departures can still happen with clubs abroad but that scenario happening seems pretty unlikely.
Looks like Axel Tuanzebe will be staying with MUFC, rather than heading out on loan. Deserves it after good performances in pre-season.

The composed Swede is most likely the player going to be partnered with Maguire which leaves the injury-prone Ivorian, Smalling, Jones, Rojo and Tuanzebe all fighting to be their back-ups.
Fans thought at least two of these players would be sold but as of now, nothing has happened in that regard.
A late report came in on Everton’s interest in Rojo but that quickly ended with no fruitful conclusion for either side.
