Everton boss David Moyes is hoping to bring in Manchester United’s young Italian striker Federico Macheda on loan in January. It is questionable how keen United would be to loan him out, but with Rooney, Berbatov, Owen and Hernandez in the squad a deal could be on the cards.
Macheda, nineteen, has made two substitute appearances for United this season, setting up Hernandez for the winner against Valencia in midweek. In all he’s made twelve league appearances, scoring three goals. One of the three was a vital goal in the climax to the 2008 / 2009 season against Aston Villa. With United at 2-2 in the third minute of injury time, Macheda turned his marker and curled a beauty into the top corner from the edge of the area to win United the game.
Everton could do with a bit more talent up front. Yakubu has struggled in recent seasons and Louis Saha is injured that much you’d think he was made out of meringue. Jermaine Beckford and Victor Anichebe are yet to prove themselves at the top level so Macheda could be a shrewd signing for Everton.
Federico Macheda has shown bundles of potential in the few first team games he’s played for Manchester United. He’s got excellent control, skill and imagination. He’s got a real Italian flair when he plays the game. Everton are lacking a bit of that up front. Macheda could be the answer and a loan deal in January could certainly be possible.
