Manchester United drop their asking price for Swedish attacker Anthony Elanga to £10m, according to a report.

Manchester United have reportedly dropped their asking price for Anthony Elanga to £10m.

The attacker has been with the Red Devils since 2014, progressing through the various age groups before making his first-team debut in 2021.

Elanga was a regular for Man United last season, making 27 appearances in all competitions, with 21 of those outings coming in the Premier League, while he has played 26 times during the 2022-23 campaign.

The Sweden international has only started five league games this term, though, with 11 of his 16 league appearances coming as a substitute.

Elanga has another three years left to run on his contract at Old Trafford and had widely expected to leave the club on loan this summer, but according to the Manchester Evening News, Man United are open to letting him depart on a permanent basis.

The report claims that the Red Devils had initially valued Elanga at £20m but have now halved their asking price to £10m in an attempt to open up more options.

The Sweden international's final Premier League appearance of the season came as a late substitute in the 7-0 defeat to Liverpool at the start of March.

Elanga only made the squad in England's top flight on three occasions in the team's final 13 matches, with head coach Erik ten Hag preferring other options in the final third of the field.

Man United are expected to be busy during this summer's transfer window, as Ten Hag looks to put together a squad capable of challenging for the biggest prizes next season.

Facundo Pellistri is widely expected to spend the 2023-24 campaign away from Man United on loan, while the club face a decision on Amad Diallo, who excelled on loan at Sunderland this season.

Phil Jones's departure on a free transfer has already been confirmed, while Brandon Williams, Eric Bailly, Axel Tuanzebe and Alex Telles are also set to be defensive departures this summer.

Scott McTominay and Fred are both being linked with exits, while Harry Maguire is expected to leave due to his struggles for starts this season.

Man United are believed to want a new centre-back, central midfielder and centre-forward this summer, while a new goalkeeper could be required if David de Gea cannot agree a new deal, with the Spaniard's existing agreement at Old Trafford due to expire at the end of June.
