have received more than ten offers for Anthony Elanga ahead of the transfer deadline, while Inter Milan have contacted the Old Trafford club about a deal for Victor Lindelof.

Elanga, who has been at United since the age of 12, has only started five Premier League games this season.

The Sweden forward enjoyed a breakthrough season last term but has found his game-time limited under Erik ten Hag.

The 20-year-old is said to be open to making a loan move before the January transfer window closes on Wednesday, and United are certainly not short of offers.

According to , Manchester United have received more than ten loan bids for Elanga, including approaches from Borussia Dortmund, PSV and several clubs in Italy.

It is claimed Ten Hag is yet to make a decision over Elanga’s future, though the former Ajax boss is ready to snub offers for Manchester United defender Lindelof.

Lindelof has also struggled for game-time this season – starting just four of United’s 20 Premier League games, playing back-up to the likes of Raphael Varane and Lisandro Martinez.

But Ten Hag is keen to retain Lindelof for the rest of the season, with United competing for a top-four place in the Premier League and soon turning their attentions to the Europa League.

United starlets Facundo Pellestri and Zidane Iqbal have also been linked with January loan moves but Ten Hag has suggested they will stay at Old Trafford.

Asked about potential loan moves for the pair, Ten Hag said on Friday: ‘We have our ideas, for some players we are open for loans but with some players they are not.

‘They have to develop first in our environment, second, we have many games to cover, and we need players to cover that.

‘When you play 10 games in 30 days you need a lot of players. The way we put on [Pellestri] on Wednesday is already a signal.’

Asked specifically about Iqbal as well as defender Brandon Williams, Ten Hag continued: ‘It’s also that counts for Zidane, definitely also for Brandon.

‘He had a bad injury, he is on the way back, he was in pre-season for the restart, he was in the squad for selection against Forest, he is a part of it.

‘It’s a little bit up to him, I like him, but we have to work with it and see where his development can go.

‘It’s also about him to deserve his chance, take his chance. But when he wants a loan, we have to talk about that.’
