Former Manchester City winger Shaun Wright-Phillips has named Anthony Elanga as the only Manchester United player ‘close’ to getting into the Man City team.

The Swedish teenager has had an impressive spell at United since breaking into the first team squad when Ralf Rangnick arrived.

When asked if any United players could make their way into Pep Guardiola’s side, the former Blue told FreeSuperTips : “No not really. I would have said before [Cristiano] Ronaldo went off the boil that he could get into a City team.

“I haven’t seen Bruno Fernandes in the way that we have seen him in the last year, so honestly, I don’t think anyone would walk into City’s team. The only one who would be the closest is Elanga right now.”

Manchester City are Premier League leaders, 19 points ahead of fourth placed Manchester United.
