English Premier League giants Manchester United FC have handed a new contract to teenage Cameroonian sensation Anthony David Junior Elanga.
The Club took to the media this Friday, to make public the move having been fascinated by the forward’s output for the season plus the youth teams.
Elanga was handed a first team contract in March this this year and has shown glimpses of his qualities since then.
Elanga has signed a contract extension till the summer of 2026.
Elanga who holds a Swedish passport and represents the Scandinavian nation at youth category has been a mainstay at the reserves this season.
The 18-year-old, who has been a part of the Manchester Club since the age of 12.
Elanga won the Jimmy Murphy Youth Team Player of the Year award last season and this term the Aon Training Complex has provided greater luck to the speedy forward.
