Ralf Rangnick is reportedly planning on offloading one Manchester United youngster previously described by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer as “electric” this month. The Red Devils have a bloated squad to contend with for the rest of the season, and a clear out has been mooted at Old Trafford.

Interim United boss Rangnick is said to be keen to let go of young forward Anthony Elanga this month on loan.

The 19-year-old has started two Champions League games this season, scoring in the 2-1 win at Atalanta, while also being given two substitute appearances in the Premier League.

However, it appears he is being readied to leave the club on loan to get some more regular playing time.

Elanga has shown in his brief minutes that he has what it takes to play for United, signing a new contract until 2026.

But according to the Sun, Rangnick wants to see him play at a senior level week in, week out, to get him up to the required level.

It is likely he will go out to a Championship side too aid his development, as could fellow fringe squad member Amad.

Solskjaer was highly complimentary of Elanga, who has represented Sweden at every level besides seniors.

Speaking to United’s official website, Solskjaer said: “The first goal had some great passes, some combination play, a big switch from Nemanja [Matic], some good play and a great volley from Anthony who’s just improving and getting better and better.

“The boy is electric, has energy and enthusiasm, he’s really enjoying himself.

“He’s done himself the world of good. We know he’s a good player, we know he’s a good lad.

“He works so hard, he’s always smiley, bright, asking what more he needs to do, he’s so hungry to improve and get better. He can play wide left, wide right, up front.. so anywhere along the front line. He’s going to be an asset.”

James Garner is currently plying his trade at Nottingham Forest, but is set to contract talks in the near future.

Ethan Laird and Di’Shon Bernard are at Swansea City and Hull City respectively, with a number of other players across the world on temporary deals.
