Who is Anthony Elanga?
Manchester United have produced countless top young talents over the years, with the likes of Marcus Rashford and Mason Greenwood regular features in the Red Devils’ current first-team ranks, having come through the club’s youth setup.
One of the latest youngsters vying for a senior role is Anthony Elanga, who has been on United’s books since 2014.

Elanga on Ronaldo
Despite the competition for places, though, Elanga has opted to remain at Man United for the time being.
Now he is doing so, he is of course set to be able to interact with Man United’s latest signing, Cristiano Ronaldo.
And, in a recent interview, Elanga has been discussing Ronaldo and outlined what he wants to learn from the Portuguese, stating that he will be looking at ‘everything’ with Ronaldo:
“I was starstruck when I heard he was coming to United. But I have calmed myself down a little now.
“I will be looking at everything with Ronaldo. How he does what he does, what he does before and after training. I’ll be asking the questions any other person would.
“He’s won everything with United and knows what it takes to play for the club. He’s a legend.
“I have heard he speaks a lot with young players and I look forward to meeting him.”
