The Manchester United striker Federico Macheda has been very little first-team action in recent years. The player has admitted recently that he would be happy to go out on loan even if it is for short-term because it would allow him to play on a regular basis. The striker has found it difficult to break into the first team that contains the likes of Robin van Persie, Wayne Rooney, and Javier Hernandez. This intense competition means that Macheda has been unable to start even a single Premier league match this season. The player has been linked with a loan move to clubs in Germany or Spain.
The Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson has not been traditionally afraid to send players out on loan deals. Macheda himself has spent loan spells at Sampdoria and QPR, but both have been unproductive for the player because he once again spent a majority of the season on the sidelines. His agent has clearly revealed that his client will be moving to a club where he will believe that first-team opportunities will come on a regular basis. Macheda has revealed that he may have made some mistakes in the past, but is extremely keen to rectify them and be an important player for United in the future.
“I had very bad luck with the loans but I think it helped me a lot. I think it helped me to gain experience in general. If I go out again on loan, I’m sure I will do well. I have been away two times already and, if it happens again. I’d look forward to getting playing time because maybe I made some mistakes but now I understand. I will take the chances I will have,” said Macheda on the official website of Manchester United. A decision is expected to be announced soon.
