Manchester United want €20m for Anthony Elanga as RB Leipzig open talks

Manchester United are willing to sell Anthony Elanga this summer, according to Sky Sport reporter Florian Plettenberg.

The Red Devils want between €15-20 million for the Sweden international, and he is not short of suitors.

RB Leipzig have held talks with Elanga’s representatives, but things have not reached an advanced stage.

Many clubs have asked about the 21-year-old, with earlier reports linking over 12 clubs with an interest.

Leipzig won the German Cup (DFB-Pokal) after finishing third in the Bundesliga behind Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund.

They will be playing in the Champions League next term and could attract Elanga as a result.

Leipzig are now without Chelsea-bound Christopher Nkunku and are looking for a replacement.

Elanga is out of favour at Man United and is seeking a fresh challenge elsewhere.

The Swede started just seven of the 26 appearances he made across all competitions this term, assisting twice.

Having fallen behind both Alejandro Garnacho and Jadon Sancho in the pecking order, Elanga will further find playing minutes more difficult to come by at Old Trafford.

Red Devils manager Erik ten Hag is set to strengthen his attack this summer, and the Swede has to leave.

Man United are desperate to shift unwanted players and will sell most of them for cheap.

They could be open to selling Elanga below €15m, which could see more suitors emerge for his services.
