Manchester United striker Federico Macheda has moved to QPR on a loan deal till the end of the season at the start of the January transfer window.

He was initially expected to become a first team regular at Manchester United after his goal scoring debut against Aston Villa in 2009. However, things have not worked out in the same way for the Italian. He has endured a frustrating spell at Manchester United recently and there has been talk of him moving away from the club permanently. He spent last season on loan at Italian club Sampdoria, but it has failed to make an impression on manager Sir Alex Ferguson.

As a result, the Italian has admitted that he will be considering his future when he completes his spell with QPR. In order to show his manager that he is capable of playing in the Premier league, Federico Macheda has stated that he will be stepping up his game another notch at QPR. QPR are in need of goals at the moment in order to get away from the relegation zone. Federico Macheda says that he is hoping that he will be the one to provide that. New manager Mark Hughes will be taking a look at Federico Macheda before deciding on the reinforcements required in the January transfer window.

“No, no, no, I don’t worry. I couldn’t help them stay in Serie A because the problem was another thing. The team did not work well and there was another situation different to here. In Italy everything is difficult and I never really played as well,” he said when asked about his failure to keep Sampdoria from relegation. QPR are just one point above the drop zone and they are looking for only their second home win of the season.
