The transfer of Swedish attacker Anthony Elanga to Nottingham Forest from Manchester United was confirmed on Tuesday by both Premier League teams.

Elanga will be playing for Nottingham Forest for the next five years.

The 21-year-old Sweden international came up through the junior system at United before making 55 appearances for the Old Trafford club across all competitions. He is now a member of the Swedish national team. Twelve of Elanga’s international appearances have been for Sweden.

Elanga reportedly joined Forest for a move of 15 million pounds ($19.27 million), according to reports from British media. The clubs did not release the specific financial specifics of the transaction.

“It is a great honor for me to be here. “Not only is this a proud moment for me, but also for my family,” Elanga said in a statement about the accomplishment.

“This is the ideal next step for me to take in my professional life… I got interest from other places, but Nottingham Forest seems like the best location for me to be right now.”

Since making his first appearance for United in the 2020-2021 season, Elanga has scored four goals for the club.

“Anthony has been a wonderful example for other members of the Academy, and he leaves with our sincere best wishes for the future,” United stated after Forest won the competition for his signing. “Anthony has been a fine role model and example for other members of the Academy.”

We would like to express our gratitude to him for his time spent working with United.
