Elanga, a Swedish native born in Malmo, had been a player  of Manchester United since his academy days and was the team's lowest-paid first-team player, at 5,000 per week. However, Elanga was informed he might leave the club after losing the respect of the coaching staff and making only five Premier League starts this season.

The transfer talks took place in the summer of 2023, with rumors claiming that Manchester United accepted an offer of between 13 and 17 million for the winger. This transfer is considered part of United's management's larger revamp of the team.
