Aston Villa fans on Twitter aren’t of the belief that playing for their club is the pinnacle of a player’s career, and whilst they all want the best players playing for them, none are annoyed at Axel Tuanzebe. The young loanee is at Villa Park on-loan from Manchester United, but The Daily Mail claim he’ll get a chance at Old Trafford in summer.

The Villains have absolutely no qualms with Tuanzebe not making his way back to the club in the summer, as they understand that the young defender is going to want to kick on and not stay in the Championship. With that being said, the Villains may still win promotion this season and a low-end newly promoted Premier League side could be perfect for the United man next season.
That won’t be what Tuanzebe wants, though. The 21-year-old is in his second loan spell with the Birmingham club, initially signing in January 2018 for the second half of the 2017/18 season. However, this time he’s spent the entire 2018/19 campaign with the Villains, and it looks like he’s done enough for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to take note and give him a chance with the Red Devils in summer.

He’s a good player he deserves it

I’m not surprised, he’s better than what they have at the moment! Fitness seems to be an ongoing issue though.

At the end of the day he’s not our player, he’s got bags of potential and would wish him all the best for wherever he is playing next season

The Villains will be desperate for Tuanzebe to rejoin them again next season, but they equally have no problems if he doesn’t resign and makes good on his chance at his parent club.
