It seems that the Manchester United striker Federico Macheda will not be moving to another club in the English football during the month of January. The 21-year-old has been linked with a move away from Old Trafford at least on a short-term basis in order to revive his year. He has barely featured for the first team at Manchester United, despite making one of the stunning announcements into the first-team more than three years ago. He scored on his debut for United to send them on their way to a 3-2 win over Aston Villa.

However, he has struggled to score goals since then and has been sent on numerous loan spells to clubs like Sampdoria and QPR in the last few seasons. It has been little that this will be his last season at the club, as he struggles to establish himself and get regular game time. There have been suggestions of a move to a lower league club in the January transfer window, but the player has said that he will be favouring a move to either Portugal or Spain rather than play in England. His agent has also been supportive of the same by saying that Spain or Portugal will suit the player much better.

“Federico obviously wants to play more and also Manchester United agree to let him go. Blackpool and Hull City? No, he definitely won’t go to one of them. We’re talking with two or three clubs in Spain and Germany, which I don’t want to name,” said his agent Giovanni Bia in a recent interview. The player has scored only a handful of goals in the appearances he has made for United in the last three seasons. His two loan spells at Sampdoria and QPR were also extremely unproductive in terms of playing time.
