Lions keen on Manchester United’s Anthony Elanga, Yaoundé makes offer to switch nationality
Anthony Elanga has impressed for Ralf Rangnick’s Manchester United sop far this season, and the youngster could represent three different nations at international level with Cameroon keen on him
Manchester United’s young starlet Anthony Elanga has been approached to switch nationalities as his stock continues to rise at the Red Devils.
Elanga was born in Sweden to Cameroonian parents, but he moved to England at 12-years-old, making him eligible for all three.
However, the youngster has represented Sweden, the country of his birth, at youth level – and Sweden are confident he will represent them.
But after being called up by the first team, Elanga failed to make an appearance after Untied blocked the call-up.
And Cameroon are now attempting to swoop in to secure the services of the youngster.
According to Footazimuts, Cameroon are trying to tempt the youngster into representing the African side on the international stage.
Elanga’s father, Joseph Elanga, represented the Indomitable Lions between 1998 and 2002, earning himself 17 caps.
He was even part of Cameroon’s side for the 1998 World Cup which was held in France.
However, the report also claims that Elanga’s mother and agent aren’t sold on the side and the talks are ‘complicated’.
