Manchester United winger Anthony Elanga has reportedly turned down a transfer to Everton, citing tactical concerns as the reason for his decision, writes the GOAL. The Sweden international is facing fierce competition for a place at Old Trafford, with several players vying for wide attacking berths in manager Erik ten Hag’s plans.
With limited playing time expected, the 21-year-old forward is looking for a new challenge this summer. While discussions were held between Elanga and Everton, the Daily Mail reports that he has reservations about how he would fit into Sean Dyche’s system at Goodison Park.
Elanga, who made 26 appearances for Manchester United last season, is yet to score a goal for the club and is seeking a fresh start elsewhere. Currently, he is part of the Red Devils’ pre-season plans in the United States, as they prepare for a series of friendlies against Arsenal, Wrexham, Real Madrid, Borussia Dortmund, Lens, and Athletic Club.
A product of Manchester United’s renowned academy system, Elanga made his senior breakthrough during Ralf Rangnick’s interim spell as manager. So far, he has accumulated 55 appearances and scored four goals for the Premier League heavyweights.
