Sir Alex OK’s Serie A Loan Deal With Option To Buy

Federico MachedaManchester United’s young Italian striker Federico Macheda looks set to move to Serie A on loan until the rest of the season.

Macheda’s agent Giovanni Bia has admitted there are several clubs interested in the 19-year-old forward:

“I can say that Inter, Juventus, Fiorentina and Lazio are all clubs that potentially could take the player,” the agent told TMW.

“However, at this moment in time, this is all speculation and there is nothing concrete. Now that Sir Alex Ferguson has given his okay for an eventual departure, we’ll see what happens.

“I don’t think the player will simply arrive on a pure loan though, I think any deal would at least be a loan with the option to buy.”

Macheda was tipped to become a real star in Manchester, but he has struggled to win a place in the United starting XI. Sir Alex is likely to use a loan deal to help with the development of the teenage striker but any option to buy may suggest that the United manager has decided that his future lies elsewhere.
