Man Utd star Anthony Elanga being pushed towards transfer by secret agent team-mate as fans blast cut-price fee | The Sun

MANCHESTER UNITED winger Anthony Elanga has been recommended to Bundesliga side RB Leipzig by one of his Sweden team-mates.

The 21-year-old is expected to leave Old Trafford this summer, with Erik ten Hag keen to cash-in.

Elanga started just seven games across all competitions during the 2022-23 campaign and has admitted to feeling "frustrated" with his lack of match action.

United have set an asking price of up to 17million for the winger, with several clubs understood to be interested in signing him.

But Elanga's Sweden team-mate, Emil Forsberg, has urged RB Leipzig to consider a swoop.

In an interview with Fotboll Skanalen, the midfielder said: "I will sit down with the president, with Oliver [Mintzlaff], here soon and see what we should do.

"I have spoken to Anthony. But it stays between us. I know Anthony quite well, so it's quite normal if it were to come up.

"But he is a young and talented player who fits in with us. We have been good at developing young and talented players."

Forsberg has made 303 appearances for RB Leipzig since joining the club in 2015.

He also has 80 senior Sweden caps to his name.

Everton expressed an interest in signing Elanga in January, but a deal failed to materialise.

PSV Eindhoven also considered a move for the winger.

Many United fans have been left furious with the club's asking price for Elanga, with many suggesting that it is far too low.

One person tweeted: “Should be more than that.”

Another wrote: “Buy back for £35million if need be.”

A third added: “If Liverpool were selling him they’d get £25million, easy. I.e. Solanke and Brewster.”
