Federico Macheda’s agent has stated that the player is set to join Sampdoria.
The Manchester United youngster is anxious for more first-team football and although Sir Alex Ferguson would rather he stayed put, he is ready to sanction a loan deal.
A clutch of Premier League clubs including West Brom and Everton have been strongly linked, but it appears Macheda is heading back to his homeland.
Sampdoria look set to win the race for his signature, according to his agent Giovanni Bia.
“The only thing missing is the formalities,” he told Sky Italia.
“I hope to finish everything by tonight so the player will be available for Sunday.” (Sky Sports)
This is a move that appears to suit all parties. Sampdoria could do with another attacking option after electing to offload Antonio Cassano to AC Milan after the fiery Italian fell out with the club’s President. Manchester United get to give their young striker some top level experience and Sir Alex Ferguson can then keep tabs on how the young striker copes with the possibility of regular first team football.
