Anthony Elanga is planning to sit down with Manchester United and discuss his plans for next season when he returns from international duty this summer.
Elanga, 19, is currently away with the Sweden U21 side as he looks to build on a positive few months in his fledgling career but he already has one eye on his long-term plans in the game.
The Swedish teenager signed a new contract with United in March and netted his first senior United goal in the victory over Wolves on the final day of the Premier League season.
Elanga carried his fine form onto the international stage as he netted on his U21 debut for Sweden in a victory over Finland last week.
The academy graduate is eager to continue developing next season and admits he would be open to a loan move if the right opportunity came around.
Would you like to see Elanga involved in United’s first-team next season? Let us know in the comments below.
“It has been a fantastic experience to make a debut,” he told Fotbollskanalen. “I’ve learned so much. All players are very welcoming to me, they give me good tips and make it very easy for me when I step on the field.
“I just have to keep working hard in training. How I train is how I play, so if I train very hard I will play very well. But right now my focus is on the U21 national team here. Then, when this get-together is over, I will sit down with the club and discuss what is best for me for next season.
“You must be ready if they want to send you out on loan or back to the U23 team. I can not say that I play for the A-team yet. You have to be ready all the time and give 150 percent in training. If I get my chance on the pitch, I have to take it. If I can score then it’s a bonus, if I can play well it’s even better.”
