Borussia Dortmund want to sign Man United winger Anthony Elanga on loan with the Swedish star open to moving abroad to get more minutes despite interest from Everton… but Erik ten Hag is yet to decide on sanctioning the switch
- Anthony Elanga has found it hard to start games for Manchester United this term
- Borussia Dortmund want to sign player on loan – he is open to moving abroad
- Everton also interested in signing Elanga who has fallen down the pecking order
- Teenager Alejandro Garnacho has surged ahead of the Swede in first team plans
United manager Erik ten Hag has still to decide whether to sanction loans for Elanga and Facundo Pellistri, who is wanted by Valencia and Watford.
Anthony Elanga has fallen out of favor at Manchester United and down the pecking order
Elanga, 20, is eager to gain more game time following the emergence of Alejandro Garnacho.
United maintain Scott McTominay is part of Ten Hag’s plans despite interest from Newcastle earlier in the window.
Elanga may be unwilling to hang around at Old Trafford as he is understood to be growing frustrated at his peripheral role under Erik Ten Hag.
He has been afforded time off the bench but has struggled to put together a consistent run of starts
The Swede prospered under former United boss Ralf Rangnick and has racked up an impressive 47 appearances already for the Red Devils.
However, this season he has started just five matches under Ten Hag with 18-year-old Garnacho having gone ahead of him in the pecking order.
Despite Sancho being out of the picture, having not played for United since before the World Cup, Elanga has struggled for starts under Ten Hag.

Borussia Dortmund have a record of developing young players who they then sell on for huge profits. Jude Bellingham, who is rumored to be a United target, is one such example of the club’s ability to harness talent.
The German giants currently sit sixth in the Bundesliga, two points off Frankfurt in fourth and a further nine back from leaders Bayern Munich.
They face Chelsea in the last-16 of the Champions League, with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Christian Pulisic potentially going up against their former side.
