But not every player gets the chance to show their greater side when they play for a club. Mentioned below are three wonderkids of Manchester United who could not fulfill their potential there.

  • Federico Macheda

Macheda’s turn and his finish against Aston Villa became a landmark moment for Manchester United when Sir Alex Ferguson was the manager. He kept the side of Old Trafford on course to lift another Premier League trophy under pressure from Liverpool. There was a high chance of Federico Macheda emerging as the next great striker, but he could not keep up to his promises that he made to the club.

Manchester United forward Marcus Rashford says he will make a comeback before the season comes to an end. After being the only beacon of hope for much of the season, the Mancunian born and bred was unfortunate enough to pick up a knock at a time United needed him most.

The England international have come a long way in convincing and proving he is not just another Federico Macheda in disguise. The Italian was one of the many academy break out stars who immediately became a fan favorite only to fizzle out when the responsibility they craved got bestowed on them fulltime.


Manchester United winger Daniel James has been impressive since making the move from Swansea netting four goals so far. The talented Welshman has impressed many with his direct running and Robben style curved finishes.

It is interesting to see how he has been deployed by Solskjaer on the left of the attack and has thrived in the role. Manchester United have a tradition of utilizing young players, both from the club and from other clubs.


Aston Villa are said to be interested in signing Club Brugge midfielder Marvelous Nakamba according to reports from Belgium. The Villans have been the highest spenders in the Premier League so far as they have spent over £100 million on 10 players this summer.

It is understood that manager Dean Smith is keen on adding Nakamba to the team as he seeks to add solidity to the midfield. Nakamba is a defensive midfielder that is capable of playing as a central midfielder and plays similarly to N’GoloKante at Chelsea.

Macheda’s Journey from a Footballer to a Mere Celebrity

Forward for Superleague Greece club Panathinaikos, Federico Macheda became a part of the football world with a whirl. He moved to England, due to financial problems faced in Italy, on an invite by Alex Ferguson for Manchester United and then he became a part of the reserve team at 16 and got his very first chance as a substitute in the match against Aston Villa in the year 2009.

He played at the premier league and scored a winning goal for the team. In the very next match, he was picked when Ferguson had Giggs and Nani as an option to win the match. Though the goal wasn’t the same as the first one but the player nailed it on the ground. He played a full 90 minutes against Everton in FA Cup semi-final. He was the promising new player, but as soon as he was free of the loan he took from the English club, he joined Sampdoria as the player wished to move back to Italy.
