Anthony Elanga will ‘probably’ leave Manchester United before January deadline
The 20-year-old has found game time hard to come by under Erik ten Hag. As a result, the winger is keen on securing a move elsewhere for regular minutes on the pitch.
A number of clubs are looking at acquiring the Sweden international’s services. However, he prefers a move to Borussia Dortmund. Everton also held an interest in the forward when Frank Lampard was at the helm.
Elanga made his way through the youth ranks at United. In the previous campaign, the 20-year-old played an influential role for the Red Devils.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s departure saw the arrival of Ralf Rangnick in the Old Trafford side’s dugout. The former interim head coach gave the Swedish national a lot of opportunities in the team.
Under the German manager, the winger was given many chances in the starting lineup. While the forward lacked the end product in front of the goal, the youngster made it up with his industry.
Last season, the likes of Marcus Rashford, Jadon Sancho and Anthony Martial were underwhelming. However, the trio have been key players for Ten Hag. The 25-year-old has especially been pivotal for the Dutch manager.
On the other hand, United also signed Antony in the summer of 2022. The Brazil international has been an ever-present in Ten Hag’s starting lineup. Alejandro Garnacho has also done well when the gaffer has called upon him.

Elanga has fallen down the pecking order. Wout Weghorst was also brought on loan by the Red Devils this month. Therefore, unless the Dutch manager counts heavily on the 20-year-old for the rest of the campaign, it seems wise to let him leave on loan.
