Federico Macheda has discussed a loan move away from Manchester United with Sir Alex Ferguson and claims offers are already on the table.
The Italian has struggled to gain a foothold in Ferguson’s plans this season, with injuries and the form of his attacking competition making it difficult for the 20-year-old to make a big enough impression on the Scot.
Macheda had a disappointing spell at Sampdoria last season which dampened his view of loan deals slightly, but the striker did not ruled out the possibility of a temporary move whilst stressing his loyalty to the Red Devils.
“An assignment on loan in January? We have opportunities, but I definitely won’t be going back to Italy,” Macheda told Tuttomercatoweb.
“I would like to play in England, today and tomorrow, because I want my future to be at Manchester United.”
“There are proposals from the Premier League, we are evaluating them and we’ll make our choices when the time comes.”
Macheda has fallen down the attacking pecking order at Old Trafford, and has seen fellow youth graduate Danny Welbeck rise above him with an impressive start to this season.
But the Italian understands the level of competition up front for such an attacking side, adding: “My situation at United? We have many strikers and it is complicated, but I understand the situation.”
“Welbeck has exploded, I was injured for a month and I only came back for 10 minutes on Saturday against Newcastle.”
“Welbeck is a great player and a very good person. I have played alongside him since I was 16 and we were in the youth teams together.”
“I am tipping him to be a big star in the future. I also believe I am capable of matching him because, despite some criticism, I am still only 20 years old.”
