Old Trafford youngster on his way to Loftus Road.
Federico Macheda has become Neil Warnock’s first piece of January transfer business, with the striker joining Queens Park Rangers on loan from Manchester United.
The Italian forward has moved to Loftus Road on a short-term agreement that will run until the end of the season.
Warnock has swooped for the 20-year-old in an effort to bolster his attacking options, while Macheda will be looking to get regular games under his belt during his time away from Old Trafford.
Both parties are delighted to have struck a deal, with QPR hoping that the switch will be beneficial to all concerned.

Though QPR have a number of attacking options, with Neil Warnock being able to call upon the likes of Heidar Helguson, Jay Bothroyd, DJ Campbell and Jamie Mackie, the West London club are still struggling for goals and a move to bring in young Italian Federico Macheda may just be a masterstroke by the Loftus Road side.
The 20 year old is way down the Old Trafford pecking order but clearly has a great deal of potential and whilst a loan move to Sampdoria last term was more miss than hit a move to QPR may well act as the next step in the youngster’s progression.
Macheda first burst onto the scene when scoring a glorious late winner against Aston Villa in April 2009 but has only made five Premier League starts for Man United since.
