Macheda will be loaned out

Manchester United are prepared to allow centre forward Federico Macheda to return to Italy, but only on a temporary basis.
The 19-year-old has featured in a large number of United squad’s this season, but with the imminent return of Michael Owen from injury and the form of Dimitar Berbatov, the striker’s chances of first-team action will be limited.
Sir Alex Ferguson is said to be a massive fan of Macheda’s potential, but is keen for his young prodigee to gain some top action experience.
Serie A club’s such as Fiorentina, Juventus and Parma are all thought to be weighing up a loan offer for the Italy under-21 international and the player’s agent is expecting more developments over the next few days.
Speaking to Macheda’s agent Marcello Bonetto said: “Federico could leave United, that is true, but only on loan. The club and Ferguson have absolute faith in Chicco.
“With the return of Michael Owen, confirmation of Wayne Rooney, plus fine form for Dimitar Berbatov and Hernandez, the space for him in Manchester has been reduced.
“We talked it over and were given the all-clear by Ferguson to go on loan for six months in January to gain experience. If we do decide to leave Manchester, then Italy represents the most likely destination.
“Up until now we have not been contacted by anybody, but will only choose a club that can guarantee Federico consistent playing time. That’s the only reason for leaving Manchester. Fiorentina have not contacted us, but can do whenever they want.”

The youngster has made 16 appearance for the Red Devils, scoring on four occasions. Welcome Bonus Offer Betway
