The award is administered by Tuttosport, with a slew of journalists voting throughout the year for the best under-21 player in Europe’s top flight leagues.
After two rounds of voting, the list of 40 players was reduced from 100 in the summer.
Elanga is one of the most promising candidates to make it past the first round of voting, joining 39 other highly regarded young people on the prestigious list.
During Ralf Rangnick’s interim period last season, the 20-year-old had a breakout season, culminating in a memorable Champions League goal away to Atletico Madrid.
Erik ten Hag has also shown faith in him this season, and he has delivered some key performances for the Reds, including a standout performance in our 2-1 win over Liverpool last month.
Our winger is joined on the list by a distinguished group of players, including Jude Bellingham, Eduardo Camavinga, and Jamal Musiala.
The final 20 players for the final round of voting will be announced next month, and United fans will no doubt be eager to see if Elanga makes the cut.
