Man Utd star frustrated with Erik ten Hag & ‘evaluating’ his future

Manchester United star Anthony Elanga is frustrated with Erik ten Hag and is evaluating his future amid the interest from a number of Premier League teams.

The 20-year-old made exciting breakthrough under Ralf Rangnick last campaign but has found starting opportunities, mainly in the Premier League, hard to come by.

Elanga signed a new long-term deal 12 months ago but his future is looking far from certain, despite Erik Ten Hag limited of attacking options.

With Cristiano Ronaldo now out of the picture and Jadon Sancho still not ready to return to the fold, an opportunity has presented itself for Elanga to re-establish his credentials.

But, with Ten Hag likely to sign at least one new forward in January, Elanga is mulling over the possibility of a loan move, according to the Daily Mail.

The Red Devils made PSV Eindhoven’s Cody Gakpo their No.1 target, but he has now agrees a move to Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool.

They are also exploring the possibility of a loan move for Joao Felix who has been deemed surplus to requirements by Atletico Madrid.

United are still yet to make a decision on Elanga’s immediate future but Everton are believed to be showing significant interest.

The Toffees raided United this time last year when they looked to kickstart Van de Beek’s Premier League career but the Netherlands international endured a miserable spell at Goodison Park.

Despite masterminding last season’s survival campaign, Lampard’s side are again in relegation trouble 12 months on with their Boxing Day defeat against Wolves piling on the pressure.

‘I thought we played a pretty good game, that we were the better team. We had relatively good control of possession and chances but if you’re not clinical, these things can happen in football & we got hit in the end,’ said Lampard after the concession of a last minute goal.

‘It’s a poor goal and we had control on the halfway line. You could feel the stadium getting edgy, and that’s not easy for the players. But it’s a disappointing goal.

‘I played for nearly 20 years so I know how it can affect a player… But for 90% of the game, I liked our decision making… the last phase of the game, before they scored, I think we should’ve been positive.’
