Elanga let down by Manchester United’s inaction, but Barça not on his radar.

    Anthony Elanga expressed his disappointment at the lack of playing time at Manchester United and suggested he could join Barcelona in January.

    The Swedish winger has made just seven appearances for the Red Devils this season, with 17 substitute appearances.

    During the last transfer window, Elanga was linked with La Liga leaders Barça and Everton, but the move never materialised.

    Asked about a possible move to Camp Nou earlier in the year, he told the Swedish newspaper Aftonbladet: “That was in January, I can’t focus on it now.

    “The best thing I can do is focus on the rest of the season and then I will talk to the club.

    “I love the club, but it’s important for me to play. I’m still young. We have spoken to the club and they know what is required and I know what is required.”

    The 20-year-old is hopeful that United boss Erik ten Hag will give him more opportunities and is determined to take risks when they come.

    He added: “It’s frustrating. You want to play, that’s important. But whether you play or not, it’s not for me to decide, but for the coach. I spoke to Eric (ten Hag) and it’s personal between the two of us. I know what he wants from me and I just keep training hard.

    “When an opportunity arises, I just have to be ready to take it. We have a lot of conversations not only about (his lack of opportunity), but also about what is happening around. It’s a good thing at the club, we talk a lot and they help me a lot.”
