Solskjaer recently claimed the 18-year-old had the ‘X-factor’, saying: “He’s got an X factor, some attributes, it’s not like a gift, but he’s got the acceleration, pace, speed, that’s a given for wingers and he’s got qualities I like.
“He’s a goalscoring winger, he’s confident, he likes to beat men, right foot, left foot, he’s got a great attitude.”
Back in November, Elanga admitted he was looking to follow in Greenwood and Marcus Rashford’s footsteps.
“You look at the likes of Mason and Rashy, there is a pathway there,” he said.
“It just shows you that if you’re willing to put the work into it and continue to work hard day in, day out in training there’s a pathway for you there.”
