Aston Villa defender Axel Tuanzebe will miss the Premier League visit to Manchester United this weekend as part of the terms of his transfer. Tuanzebe is on loan at Aston Villa from Manchester United and he is ineligible for the league clash between the two teams as a result.

Villa boss Dean Smith confirmed his imminent absence ahead of the trip to Manchester in his pre-match presser on Thursday. He revealed that him and his coaching staff are yet to decide if they would stick with a five-man defence or revert back to a four-man defence for the Manchester United game due to the absence of the abovementioned Tuanzebe. He went on to praise the impact of Tuanzebe since signing on a season-long loan deal before this summer’s transfer window ended in August.


The wait for new Manchester United defender Raphael Varane to be unveiled as. Red Devil has finally been over after the player walked onto the Old Trafford pitch to greet the 75,000 fans that were in attendance on Saturday afternoon before the game between the Red Devils and Leeds United kicked off. United fans had been waiting and had even lost their patience as they kept asking the club when their newest player would be unveiled. However, after he was unveiled to the Old Trafford faithful just before lunch kick-off on Saturday, tensions have now cooled off and the fact that he is now finally a Manchester United player has cooled the impatience of the fans.

After it was confirmed that United and Real Madrid had reached a gentleman’s agreement for the transfer of the defender to the English Premier League giants, there were a couple of factors that caused a delay in the player getting unveiled. The factors include the fact that he had to first go into quarantine after traveling to England and secondly he encountered passport issues that also needed to be resolved as soon as possible before any further arrangement could be made.
