Federico Macheda Set to Join Italian Club Pescara

Former Manchester United striker Federico Macheda is widely expected to join Italian outfit Pescara before the end of the transfer window.

Currently playing with Cardiff City, the striker has never settled in English football after exploding onto the scene when playing for United.Macheda had one of the sensational first few matches for such a major club like United. However, he had been unable to keep up his reputation of scoring key goals and this led to one loan move after the other. Sir Alex Ferguson kept a lot of faith in the Italian striker before finally deciding to sell him in 2014.

The striker was expected to get some much needed regular first-team football at Cardiff. After having moved to the bluebirds on a free transfer,Macheda was given opportunities to impress. However, recurring injuries and poor form as a result of it meant thatMacheda’s form never improved. Following the club’s relegation to the Championship last season, Cardiff started looking at other alternatives and sent the player out on loan to Nottingham Forest in order to keep up his fitness levels. This summer,Macheda has reportedly been told by the club that he is free to leave. Continue reading Federico Macheda Set to Join Italian Club Pescara

If you have been following Federico Macheda’s career moves, you would have noticed the latest change in his role as he plays as a free transfer on the Nottingham Forest team. The change came by in March this year.

The striker came onto the team from Cardiff City. Initially, he was offered as a loan which was subject to clearance as per international transfer laws.

Federico Macheda continues being dropped to the bench

Federico Macheda’s career appears to have reached a new point in his career and not in a good way as the Italian attacker joined Nottingham Forest on a loan deal which was agreed back on March of the ongoing year.

One of the main reasons of why Macheda decided to join Nottingham Forest on a loan deal and make his way out of Cardiff City was to try and get more consistent playing time with the main team but this it hasn’t happened as the Italian player has had to settle with a place on the sidelines as a substitute player for the majority of the time that he has spent with Nottingham Forest.

Even after leaving Cardiff City and joining another club, Federico Macheda is struggling trying to find a regular spot in the main of whatever club he is performing in.

This is a huge turn of event for the player that stunned the world of football when he made his Premier League for Manchester United debut back on 2009. It was a dream debut for Federico Macheda as he scored the winning goal which helped Manchester United overcome Aston Villa with a superb goal and this was hugely impressive taking into consideration the fact that Macheda was 17 years old.

Italian forward, Federico “Kiko” Macheda, who was widely touted as the future of English Premier League giant, Manchester united, has come out in support of young talent, Marcus Rashford. Federico did get first team action for the EPL giants whilst he was a teenager but he is currently playing for English championship side, Nottingham Forest. The parent club of the 24 year-old is Cardiff City FC but currently his loan spree has taken him to Cardiff City. The footballer’s contract runs till mid next year with his club but his loan ends next month.

Federico also had a sterling start at Old Trafford playing for The Red Devils. Like Rashford, he scored in his first two appearances for the team in 2009. He was even younger than Rashford as he was 17 years old. He went on to score three more goals in his subsequent matches totaling 34, with Sir Alex Ferguson at the helms. After his poor run, his loan spree began. He has played on loan for Italian club Sampdoria, English championship team Queens Park Rangers (QPR), VfB Stuggart in Germany, UK team Doncaster Rovers FC and Birmingham. All these were before his eventual free transfer to current club, Nottingham Forest before being sent on loan again to Cardiff City.

Her told reporters when asked about Rashford that he doesn’t expect same to happen to the young lad. Macheda said: “Marcus needs to continue working hard, don’t grow a big head, don’t read or listen to all the hype and be lucky with injuries.”

He advised current young sensation, that put two goals past Arsenal FC this season, to remain calm. Continue reading FEDERICO MACHEDA: RASHFORD HAS A BETTER CHANCE

After failing with Cardiff, where will Federico Macheda join?

There was a time when Federico Macheda was hailed as being one of the brightest players to emerge from the youth academy of Manchester United. The Italian attacker made so many top performances with the Under-18 side that the club decided to offer him a professional contract when he was only 17 years old.

After having signed his first professional contract with Manchester United, Macheda was getting limited playing time with the Premier League as he was mostly serving as a substitute player and this is why he opted to join a number of different clubs with hopes of gaining more experience outside of Old Trafford.

Sampdoria, Queens Park Rangers, Stuttgart, Doncaster Rover, Birminham City are all of the clubs that Macheda joined on loan deals before eventually going on to sign a permanent deal with Cardiff City.

Macheda’s time in Cardiff City might be reaching it’s end as the head coach of the English club, Russell Slade is believed to be interested in letting the Italian forward go in the winter transfer window after failing to make any impressive performance.

Along with Federico Macheda, Alex Revell is another player who has not made any kind of impact in Cardiff City and the English forward is also rumored to be on his way out of the club after failing to impress the head coach Russell Slade.

Federico Macheda had to undergo a surgery in order to resolve a back problem that he was suffering; this made him unable to play for a considerable long time but even when the Italian attacker has been available to play fully recovered, his time in the pitch seems to be non-existant and his future is being linked with a move away from Cardiff City and the question that lies is where will he join if he leaves the English League Championship club?

Things been picking up for Borussia Dortmund

Not too long ago, Borussia Dortmund was located in the basement of the German League and relegation appeared to be inevitable but things have slowly been picking up for the team of JurgenKlopp as they have been climbing spots in the league and are now safely away from the bottom zone.

During these dreadful months of Borussia Dortmund, certain players of the squad were not satisfied in how the team was performing and they were rumored on exiting the German club when the current season reaches it’s end.

Marco Reus and Mats Hummels are some of the standout players of Borussia Dortmund that were linked with a move outside of the club. Not too long ago, Real Madrid was interested in signing Marco Reus but the midfielder penned a contract extension that will keep him in the club at least until 2019.

Mats Hummels contract with Borussia Dortmund runs out in 2017 but the German defender is still being linked with a number of clubs that are still interested and are attempting to lure him away from the hands of JurgenKlopp.

Manchester United is one of the top European clubs that has been most linked with the German defender and Louis van Gaal will be glad to hear that Mats Hummels is actually open and likes the idea of joining a team outside of Germany which is something that he has never done before in his career.

Cardiff City clearing out Club to sustain

Cardiff City appeared to be in the process of mass clear out as the club have already sold five players since the appointment of Russell Slade as the permanent manager.

More names are expected to follow in the last few days of the transfer window and Slade has given a warning to supporters that the club are no longer in the market for top names. This is widely expected to be the norm at Cardiff for the next few transfer windows given that the club has slipped away from the top six. The sale also appears to hint at Cardiff owner Vincent Tan withdrawing his commitment.

Tan made several changes to the club – including the colour of the shirt – this season and it has been seen as a way to pacify the supporters. Slade, though, reiterated that Tan remains committed to the Cardiff cause as ever. Continue reading Cardiff City clearing out Club to sustain

Russell Slade unhappy with Young Players Performance

Russell Slade, the man in charge of Cardiff City, is a little disappointed to see his talented, young players not being able to play as well as they can.

In the previous game versus Rotherham which is not the strongest of the Championship teams, Slade started with the 25-year old Kim Bo-Kyung, but, that move did not work as the young midfielder struggled in the game.

The game finished as a scoreless draw which was not such a bad result for Rotherham, but, for Cardiff, it was certainly not what they would have wanted.

The fans found it very hard to digest the fact that Cardiff could not defeat a comparatively weaker side in home conditions and they ended up booing their own players.

Talking to the press later that evening, Slade said, “Kim had been playing well for the development squad. So, we thought it’s the right time for him to be brought in, but, he could not live up to it. He tried, but, he does not seem to be a finished product yet.”

“He had earned his place in the XI, but, at this point of time, I can’t say if he is going to be retained in the next game or not.”

“Ravel is another one whom we rate quite high. But, he tends to waste his energy at times.”

Slade did not criticize the fans for booing. According to him, the fans are quite attached to the team and thus, they feel bad when there is string of negative results.

In the words of Slade, “You would have seen the atmosphere a couple of years back when the boys had earned promotion. The fans were buzzing. But, now, obviously, it’s different as we have not been able to produce the goods. The perspective of the fans can be understood.”
