It is a well-known fact that Manchester United striker Federico Macheda will be sent out on loan next season in order to provide him with experienced before getting a shot at the Manchester United first team.
Sir Alex Ferguson has already said that in a recent interview. Hence, it was initially rumoured that Manchester United were looking at the possibility of sending back to Italy with Sampdoria on a loan deal till the end of the season. However, it is learnt that the player is against such a move because of the fact that Macheda’s earlier loan spell with the club was a major disappointment.
In the previous season, Macheda spent a large portion of the season on loan at Sampdoria after not getting regular football at Manchester United. However, the Italian youngster was extremely unlikely, as the manager who had brought him to the club was sacked immediately after a few matches following his arrival. The new manager did not see Macheda as a viable alternative to the striking options he had at the club.
As a result, Macheda spent most of the time on the bench and the loan spell ultimately ended as a major failure. He recently went out on loan to Premier league club QPR, but that loan spell ended prematurely as well due to an injury.
“If I knew the reasons why it didn’t work out, I’d say so. It was an unlucky season. But now the team can return to Serie A. For me it was not a good time. Could I go back to Samp? I was not happy there, I do not know. I’d think about it,” Macheda said regarding his potential destinations in the summer. The Italian has also been linked with a move to Portuguese club Benfica in exchange for Javi Garcia.
