Manchester United striker Federico Macheda is on the verge of joining Doncaster Rovers on a short-term loan deal.
Macheda was tipped for big things at Old Trafford following his memorable winner against Aston Villa in 2009 but has failed to progress as expected.
Since then he has made just 15 Premier League appearances for the Red Devils and been loaded out to Sampdoria, Queens Park Rangers and most recently Stuttgart.
The Manchester United striker was at the John Smith's Stadium to watch Doncaster's 0-0 draw against Huddersfield Town on Saturday, and it is now being reported locally that he will make the move to the Keepmoat Stadium for one month shortly.
It is also being reported that Macheda arrived for training on Monday morning with Doncaster, but as yet neither the Championship club or Manchester United themselves have confirmed the agreement.
The Italian's contract at Old Trafford is up at the end of the season and is unlikely to be renewed.
