Anthony Elanga bids farewell to Manchester United after nine years with the club

Anthony Elanga has confirmed that he has left Manchester United after nine years at the club.

The 21-year-old has completed a move to fellow Premier League side Nottingham Forest. It is expected that the Red Devils have received £15 million from the deal.

Elanga joined United aged 12 in 2014 and worked his way through the ranks at Carrington to play a key role in the senior team. His first-team debut came on May 11, 2021, in a Premier League clash against Leicester City and he has since gone on to make a total of 55 appearances for the club.

Throughout his time as a Red, the Sweden international scored four and assisted four goals. One strike, in particular, will be remembered fondly by the Old Trafford faithful; he displayed excellent composure to find the back of the net against Atletico Madrid and seal a late, first-leg draw in the Champions League tie.

Last season, Elanga was granted just seven starts in all competitions, so a move away from the club is the best case for all parties to ensure he continues his development by receiving adequate game time elsewhere.
