One Manchester United man set for big loan move this month

Postado Janeiro 13, 2018

The 20-year-old centre-half is a former victor of the club's young player of the year award and has broken through under the Portuguese and has been training with the Red Devils' first-team squad.

That player comes in the form of Axel Tuanzebe who is seen as one of the biggest young prospects at the club now.

The 20-year-old has been used twice from the bench in the Premier League and Champions League combined this term, while also being handed a rare start in the EFL Cup win over Swansea City in October.

And according to Bleacher Report's Dean Jones, Tuanzebe will join up with Steve Bruce's men - now in fifth place in the Championship - for the rest of the campaign.

Though, Jose Mourinho did confirm today that the club would wait to see on injuries to other players before letting the youngster leave.

"I think everybody knows and understands the situation we're in - I think I've been pretty clear", the Birmingham Mail quote him as saying.

"Tuanzebe's a very good player that is not having lots of possibilities to play here", Mourinho told the Manchester Evening News. But he's our player and will be our player, no chance we give up on such a talented boy.

"But it is something we are thinking about, a loan until the end of the season". We have Eric Bailly injured, we are not free of other injuries.

"If we have a decision at the end of the month and feel Eric Bailly is close to being back, then probably will be good for Axel to go on a loan and be back next season, because he's a player we like very much".

Though, Jose Mourinho has given a time frame for when fans can expect him back.
