Aston Villa have completed some seriously exciting transfer business since returning to the Premier League, but if they get Axel Tuanzebe for just £8 million then it will be their finest transfer work of the summer.
Tuanzebe spent last season on loan at Villa and seriously impressed, as he helped the claret and blues earn promotion to the Premier League.
Villa are now working on a deal with United, and are hoping to get Tuanzebe for just £8 million.
At the moment the deal looks a long way off, and it would be a shock if the Red Devils were to agree to that fee, but if Villa can pull it off then it will be a brilliant deal.
Tuanzebe is still only 21, and he has all the capabilities to be a centre-back at the highest level.
It is practically impossible in the current market to sign a player of Tuanzebe’s current ability and future potential for just £8 million.
And if Villa manage to complete the transfer for that price then it will have to go down as their finest piece of business for many years.
