Axel Tuanzebe Is Returning To Manchester United Looking Like An Absolute Machine

Manchester United defender Axel Tuanzebe is returning to the club looking in freakish physical condition ahead of pre-season.

The 24-year-old spent the first part of last season on loan at Aston Villa, playing 11 times in all competitions.



But when Steven Gerrard replaced Dean Smith as manager, Tuanzebe found opportunities hard to come by and was recalled from the loan.

He was then sent to Serie A side Napoli but again did not receive regular gametime and played just twice.

The United youth product now has the chance of a fresh start under new boss Erik ten Hag and has clearly been working hard to catch his eye.

Instead of resting up, Tuanzebe has been hitting the gym relentlessly and posted a picture of him looking absolutely shredded on his Instagram.

His shoulders, pectorals and arms look huge and then he has the washboard abs to go with it.

United fans have been impressed by his ripped physique and reckon he's been taking the Leon Goretzka-Bayern Munich training routine route.

Tuanzebe became the youngest player to captain United since Norman Whiteside when he was appointed captain for the Carabao Cup win over Rochdale in September 2019.

He then made his Champions League debut just over a year later, pocketing Kylian Mbappe in a defensive masterclass against Paris Saint-Germain at the Parc des Princes.

In August 2021, prior to being loaned out, he signed a new two-year extension - with the option of a third year.

The local lad's talents aren't restricted to the football pitch as he holds the Guinness World Record for the quickest time taken needed to clear a game of Hungry Hippos.

He got an official certificate after becoming a world-record holder during a pre-season tour of the United States back in 2018.

17.36 seconds was his remarkably quick time but with his improved physical attributes, he might be able to better that in his next effort.
