Manchester United flop Federico Macheda has confirmed that he does not believe he will be returning to play for the club once his loan-spell at Birmingham is at an end, despite the fact that they will have a new manager.
The 22-year-old striker has been on loan in the Championship since the January transfer window, and has managed to score nine times for the St. Andrew’s club, but when asked about his future he played down talk of a possible return to the first-team fold at his parent outfit. The Italian forward has been shipped out to no less than six different clubs in the past three years and despite the fact he was initially tipped to have a bright career at Old Trafford, has been a relative outcast.
But far from harbouring hopes of making a triumphant return to Manchester under a new boss - following this morning’s official dismissal of David Moyes - Macheda will be happy so long as he remains in the Premier League.
According to Sky Sports, he said: “In Birmingham things are going quite well, I'm scoring regularly.
"My future? It's moving something important.
"I'd like to remain in England because I have grown up here with football.
"I think I won't return to Manchester regardless of the new coach."
The young forward’s current deal with the reigning Premier League champions is up in the summer, and it looks a safe bet he’ll move on to pastures new rather than be retained.
