Manchester United defender Axel Tuanzebe has joined top Serie A side, Napoli, on loan until the end of the season. The 24-year-old was recently recalled by Manchester United from his third loan spell at Aston Villa after struggling for game time under new manager Steven Gerrard.
Axel Tuanzebe Joins Napoli
Tuanzebe joined Manchester United at a very tender age of eight and has made 37 senior appearances since his first-team debut in 2017. The former England Under-21 defender made 45 appearances for Aston Villa in his three spells with the Midlands club.
Napoli sits third in the Italian Serie A table, six points behind leaders Inter Milan, and faces Barcelona next month in the play-off round of the Europa League. Tuanzebe left Bunia in the Democratic Republic of Congo as a child to build a new life in the UK.
