Ole Gunnar Solskjaer can confirm that Manchester United will allow Axel Tuanzebe to leave the club following the imminent arrival of Raphael Varane from Real Madrid.
The Red Devils have already agreed a £34m deal to sign the experienced defender who is now scheduled to undergo a medical before the transfer being announced.
United have all but confirmed the Frenchman is Old Trafford-bound earlier in the week, with the club announcing they have reached an agreement with Madrid over his transfer.
The arrival of Varane is expected to boost Solskjaer's options at the back, with the Norwegian already having a string of players who can play at centre-back.
The young defender was limited to just 18 appearances last season and will be desperate for first-team football.
But that will not be guaranteed at Old Trafford, meaning he will have to move on this summer to realize his dream.
What was said
According to Solskjaer, the decision was occasioned by the plethora of options he has in defence, with Phil Jones also lined up to make a return.
"I can see of course with Raphael looking like everything is sorted there and we’ve made that deal, I can see Axel going out. That’s because I’ve got Raphael, Maguire, Lindelof, Eric Bailly and Phil Jones is coming back in."
United are believed to be keen on loaning out Tuanzebe rather than offloading him in a permanent transfer.
What former Man City star said about Varane
Meanwhile, Legit.ng earlier reported that ex-Manchester City full-back Danny Mills believes the incoming Manchester United star Raphael Varane will struggle with the physicality of the Premier League.
The Red Devils confirmed they have reached an agreement with Real Madrid for the transfer of the Frenchman in a deal valued at around £43 million.
He is expected to undergo medicals before signing the dotted lines after which he will be presented to the fans.
