It is believed the 23-year-old has grown frustrated at United for lack of game time having managed just four Premier League starts last season.

According to Metro UK, Tuanzebe feels he deserved more chances to impress but found himself third in Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's pecking order.

It was initially thought he would feature more often after he impressed against Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League, only to be relegated to the bench afterward.

Manchester Evening News now reports the promising defender and United have agreed he should leave on a season-long loan to continue his development.

A host of clubs in the Premier League and abroad are understood to be interested in the services of Tuanzebe, with the centre-back determined to get regular first-team action.

This would be the second time he will be leaving on loan, having previously featured for Aston Villa under similar terms.

The academy graduate has just a year left on his current deal, but there is an option for an extension for a further year.

The development around his future comes at a time Man United are in the market for an experienced centre-back who can be paired with Harry Maguire.

Real Madrid's Raphael Varane and Villarreal's Pau Torres have since been earmarked for the role.

Earlier, had reported how despite churning out an impressive performance for his country England against Czech Republic in their last Group game at the EURO 2020, Luke Shaw has been criticized by his former manager at Old Trafford Jose Mourinho.

On Tuesday night, June 22, Jack Grealish provided the assist which helped Manchester City winger Raheem Sterling to score the only goal that gave England their win over Czech Republic.

Luke Shaw and his teammate at Manchester United Harry Maguire played 90 minutes for England in the encounter against Czech Republic as they finished leaders in Group D.
