Manchester United striker Federico Macheda's agent claims the Italian is "95%" certain to join QPR on loan in the January transfer window.

The 20-year-old Italian has made just six appearances for United's first team this season and has been linked with a move to Wigan with Sir Alex Ferguson keen to give some of his youngsters as much exposure as possible.

Macheda's representative, Giovanni Bia, claims there is no chance of a switch to the DW Stadium and instead will in all probability move to west London on loan. Bia told skysports.com: "There was nothing concrete with Wigan. The club closer to Macheda is QPR."
