Manchester United look to have dragged themselves into the race for the Premier League title thanks to a 2-1 win over rivals Manchester City on Saturday. 

The reigning champions took the lead through Jack Grealish in the second half before a quick fire double from Bruno Fernandes and Marcus Rashford turned the game on its head.

Erik ten Hag’s side now sit just one point behind their neighbours in second, with leaders Arsenal eight points clear at the top.

The Red Devils’ fine form has been helped massively by Marcus Rashford, with the England international having scored eight goals in his last seven matches across all competitions.

While Rashford has been in scintillating form, it appears that one of his attacking teammates could be on his way out of Old Trafford.

According to TalkSPORT, a number of clubs are interested in signing United winger Anthony Elanga.

The 20-year-old has struggled for game time so far this season – starting just five Premier League matches so far – and it is claimed that he could be allowed to leave the club this month.

German giants Borussia Dortmund are said to be interested in a shock move for the Swedish forward, who has also attracted interest from clubs in the Premier League.

Both Everton and Bournemouth have reportedly shown an interest in the player, who has made 47 appearances for United.

Last term, Elanga made 27 appearances for United across all competitions, scoring twice in the Premier League.

Elanga, a nine-time Sweden international, has fallen behind the likes of Antony and Alejandro Garnacho in the pecking order at Old Trafford in recent months.

Garnacho, 18, provided the assist for Rashford’s winner against City on Saturday and has been involved in United’s last ten games.

Bundesliga side Dortmund have had success when signing players from England previously, with the likes of Jadon Sancho and Jude Bellingham enjoying fine careers with the club having joined from Manchester City and Birmingham City respectively.
