Manchester United defender Axel Tuanzebe is close to completing a loan move to Italian Serie A side Napoli for the remainder of the season. The 24-year-old was recently recalled by Manchester United from his third loan spell at Aston Villa.
Axel Tuanzebe Set to Join Napoli
Aston Villa boss Steven Gerrard was keen for the player to return to the club but instead, Tuanzebe will join Italian side Napoli. The Italian side is currently third in Serie A table and due to face Barcelona next month in the play-off round of the Europa League.
The Manchester United player, who has made 45 appearances for Aston Villa but has struggled for playing time under Gerrard, left Bunia in the Democratic Republic of Congo as a child to build a new life in the UK.
The player joined Manchester United at the tender age of eight and has made 37 senior appearances for the club since making his first-team debut in 2017.
