Manchester United is delighted to announce that Anthony Elanga has signed a new contract, which will keep him at the club until June 2026, with the option to extend for a further year.

Elanga, 19, joined United’s Academy at the age of 12 and has made five appearances for the first team so far. The Sweden Under-21 international memorably scored on just his second Premier League start, in last season’s 2-1 victory over Wolverhampton Wanderers.

This is the perfect environment to take the next step, with world-class players and coaches to learn from every day. I am overjoyed that the Club has shown such faith in my development, and I want to thank my family and all of the staff for their ongoing support. I know that with hard-work and dedication comes opportunity at this special club and I cannot wait to continue my progress here. Glory to God always.”
John Murtough, Football Director, said:

“Anthony is a young player that we all really believe in. He has consistently impressed throughout the Academy age groups and risen to every challenge that he has faced. Anthony is extremely dedicated; he has the work-rate and attitude to keep improving every day and succeed at Manchester United. He is yet another fantastic example of the type of player that our world-leading youth development system continues to produce. We are thrilled that Anthony has signed this new contract, and everyone is excited to see him grow over the coming seasons.”
