Manchester United’s latest starlet trained with first-team ahead of Moscow game

Manchester United host a talented CSKA Moscow side at Old Trafford tomorrow night, with Louis van Gaal hoping his side can turn out a better performance than they have been capable of over recent weeks – resulting in three 0-0 draws on the bounce.

Ahead of the game the Press Association have revealed that the young starlet Axel Tuanzebe was once again involved in first-team training – after featuring on the Manchester United bench against Crystal Palace over the weekend.

Tuanzebe, 17, is Manchester United’s current U18 Player of the Year and captain of the youth side who was born in the Democratic Republic of Congo but grew up on the streets of Rochdale.

He is touted as the next big thing to potentially come through the Old Trafford ranks and Louis van Gaal clearly has a lot of faith in the young centre-half. Who knows, we could even see him given his debut in the Champions League if things are going smoothly tomorrow night.
