Manchester United appears to be a club in the mood for sales this summer. In particular, the hierarchy seems to be taking clear-cut decisions when it comes to some of their youngsters. In continuation of the same, it comes as little surprise that Anthony Elanga is on the radar of multiple clubs.

According to The Athletic, Elanga is now being pursued by Nottingham Forest in addition to Everton. The Merseyside club was strongly linked with the youngster in the winter window too with it being suggested that if not for timeline constraints, a deal would have certainly been sanctioned and met.

However, it appears that Everton may not be as lucky in the summer, given that they too have financial constraints. In this case, the hunt for the United forward who made several memorable cameo appearances may receive plenty of competition.

Forest to rival Everton for Manchester United talent

According to the report, Forest has put their interest into contention too, and may very well rival any attempt that Everton could make for the 21-year-old’s signature.

They are not the only other interested party, however, as other British sides, as well as German interest from the Bundesliga, is also being touted for the Swedish international.

Elanga was viewed as a powerful presence in the club’s youth setup, best evidenced by his securing the Jimmy Murphy Young Player of the Year award around three years ago. Under Ralf Rangnick, a lot of potential was seen but the era Erik ten Hag has not been as kind.

Thus, a situation similar to Fred’s can realistically emerge here too. Manchester United will be hoping to make the most out of any bidding war as the club has certainly looked slim when it has come to shipping out talent for good money in the recent past.
