Manchester United striker Federico Macheda will leave Old Trafford in the summer, according to his agent Giovani Ba.
The striker has failed to hit the heights of his first couple of months in Manchester United's first team, when the Italian scored two goals in two games for the Red Devils.
Macheda has since been shipped out on loan four times - to Sampdoria, Queens Park Rangers, Stuttgart and Doncaster - where he scored a cumulative total of just three league goals in 46 games.
The 22-year-old has just returned to Manchester United following a loan spell at Championship outfit Doncaster Rovers and his agent has revealed that he will spend the rest of the season at Old Trafford.
Ba told Tuttomercato: "United won’t loan him out anymore. He will stay till the summer, when he can move on a free.
"It’s crazy to think that it has been five years since he scored that goal against Aston Villa but it was always going to be difficult for him to live up to the expectations he made of himself.
"At 22, Macheda still has his whole career ahead of him and hopefully he can have better luck with injuries and find a team where he can get regular first team football outside of United."
Macheda could be one of nine players to leave Manchester United in the summer as Rio Ferdinand, Nemanja Vidic, Patrice Evra, Javier Hernandez, Nani, Anderson, Alex Buttner and Anders Lindegaard have all been linked with a move away from Old Trafford.
