Manchester United could be set to offload Federicho Macheda, with reports suggesting that Championship strugglers Doncaster are keen to re-sign the Italian striker.

22-year-old Macheda, who joined the Premier League champions as a youngster from Serie A outfit Lazio in September 2007, appeared to have a bright future at Old Trafford after notching the winner on his first-team debut in a last-gasp victory over Aston Villa.

The Italy U21 international has utterly failed to live up to that early billing, however, and has been sent on loan to Sampdoria, Queens Park Rangers and Bundesliga side Stuttgart in recent seasons with little success.

Earlier this year, Macheda was allowed to complete a temporary switch to the second-tier with Paul Dickov's newly-promoted Doncaster. 

The forward managed to defy lowly expectation to net three goals in just five Championship matches before a troublesome hamstring injury sustained last month forced him to cut short his productive loan spell.

With Macheda nearing a return to full fitness, however, he could be set to return to the Keepmoat Stadium with the Daily Star suggesting that Dickov - whose team currently sit 18th in the table with a poor goal difference - is eager to bring him back as he looks to strengthen his squad in a bid for survival.
