Manchester United striker Federico Macheda has expressed his belief that he is unlikely to return to Old Trafford according to Sky Sports.

The Italian striker is currently out on loan with Bundesliga side Stuttgart and has been the subject of repeated speculation in recent weeks linking him with a move away from the club.

Stuttgart are thought to have an option to make the player’s loan deal permanent while the player’s former club Lazio are also reported to be monitoring the striker’s availability.

Macheda joined United from Lazio as a 16 year old in 2007 and has expressed a desire to one day return to his boyhood club.

Macheda was thought to have a bright future at Old Trafford after bursting onto the scene with a late winner on his debut against Aston Villa.

But he has struggled to find regular first team action with the Premier League giants and is likely to find his path next season blocked by the club’s current attacking quartet of Robin Van Persie, Wayne Rooney, Danny Welbeck and Chicharito Hernandez.

Macheda is reportedly enjoying life in Germany and is keen to stay with the club rather than be farmed out on yet another loan deal.

The player has made temporary moves to Sampdoria and QPR in recent years and is keen to finally find somewhere where he can settle.
