Manchester United striker Federico Macheda has admitted the chance to rejoin Lazio next summer would be too good to turn down, reports the Daily Star.
The 22-year-old revealed his desire for another stint in Serie 'A' during a recent interview with Calciomercato, after finding first-team opportunities limited with the reigning Premier League champions.
"A return to Lazio? As for any fan it would be the best for me," said Macheda.
The Italian youngster burst onto the scene at Old Trafford with a sensational match-winning goal on his Manchester United debut, in a 3-2 victory over Aston Villa in 2009.
However, Macheda has struggled to cement his place in the senior side, and was twice sent out on loan - to Sampdoria and Queens Park Rangers - to gain further experience of regular football.
This season, David Moyes has allowed the striker to leave for a spell with Championship outfit Doncaster Rovers, and he wasted little time in impressing at the Keepmoat Stadium after scoring a brace in last weekend's 2-2 draw with Nottingham Forest.
Macheda's fine performance has put him back in the limelight in his native Italy, and with less than 12 months remaining on his Manchester United contract, rumours of a possible return to Stadio Olimpico on a free transfer are beginning to gather pace.
