7 Man Utd Players you Forgot were Still at the Club and Face Uncertain Futures



Tuanzebe Axel

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has plenty of young talent at his disposal that will help him see out this season, and he also has big-name stars out on loan who will return in the summer.


The Premier League returns next week, and with it comes Fantasy Football. Players across the country will be looking for overlooked, potentially cheap players to include in their teams.

And where better to look, perhaps, than some of the forgotten names at the Premier League’s biggest clubs. There are a handful of players on the periphery at Manchester United that appear to have been cast aside permanently. But who knows? Maybe this is the time for a resurgence.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has a plethora of youth at his disposal that will help him see out this season. But he’s also got big-name stars out on loan who will return in the summer.

Daily Star Sport takes a look at some of the names you may have forgotten who still face uncertain futures.

Axel Tuanzebe

Axel Tuanzebe
Tuanzebe is back at United after two seasons on loan at Aston Villa in the Championship, but he has struggled to push on.

Injuries have not helped the 22-year-old defender, who still has plenty of time to develop further.

He remains highly rated at United, too, although there is plenty for him to prove if called upon by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer when the season resumes.

Now fully fit, Tuanzebe will hope to prove his doubters wrong.

Timothy Fosu-Mensah

Another young player who was expected to kick on after loan spells, Fosu-Mensah has found himself lower down the pecking order at United.

He is another victim of injuries, with a knee problem keeping him out
for most of this season.

United reportedly want the 22-year-old to agree to a new contract before he is sent out on another loan.

Fosu-Mensah, if he does not agree to the proposal, could risk going another year without any first team football, which would not help him in any potential search for a new club.

Cameron Borthwick Jackson

Borthwick-Jackson looked like a youngster with plenty of promise when he broke through during the 2015-16 season, but he has been unable to build on that early momentum.

Now 23, he is currently on loan at League Two side Oldham, and dropping to that level suggests he is unlikely to have a future for much longer at United.

Lee Grant

The 38-year-old goalkeeper was a surprise signing in 2018, and has quietly gone about his business as United’s third choice ever since.

Grant has made just one appearance, in the Europa League against Astana, over the last two seasons.

Other than that, the veteran shot stopper has been very much a peripheral figure, so much so that even United fans might wonder who he is the next time (if there is a next time) he takes to the pitch.

Chris Smalling

Those who have kept a close eye on Serie A will not have forgotten Smalling, who has mostly impressed on loan at Roma.

The Italian club intend to keep the defender beyond the end of this season, although that will depend on United’s willingness to sell.

Amid the noise of another Premier League season, thoughts of Smalling might have been put to one side. He may yet have a future at the club, though.

Alexis Sanchez

Another player out on loan, everything about Sanchez’s United career so far can be summed up with the word forgettable.

So much was expected following his arrival from Arsenal in 2018, but he repeatedly underwhelmed and eventually fell down the pecking order under Solskjaer.

He is currently on loan at Inter, and his place in United’s squad beyond this season remains unclear.
