Is A Loan Move The Best Option For Macheda?

Bologna want Federico Macheda on loan. The Italian striker had limited opportunities this campaign, not least because of injuries and the Italian club would love to take him on a temporary basis which might be beneficial for him as he could gain a little match sharpness and some crucial experience of top-flight football.

'Bologna have asked for him but we have to evaluate things with Manchester United,' his agent Giovanni Bia told Tuttomercatoweb.

'This afternoon I have a telephone appointment with them, but it will be difficult for them to let him go. If they will do it, it would be on loan.'

I'm not sure about this. Being loaned is not necessarily a disaster for a young player, as the examples of Gerard Pique and Jonny Evans clearly show (or we could cite David Beckham as well). However, there are a lot of youngsters who failed to make an impact at United after going out on loan, like Giuseppe Rossi whom we lost because he felt he would not get enough opportunities.

Macheda would certainly benefit from regular football and he's unlikely to get much of it at Old Trafford, now that we're out of the FA Cup and that a new, more experienced striker arrived who, according to Sir Alex, will play a part - and surely not at the expense of Rooney. In the end, young players have to play and Macheda looks certain to be only the fifth or sixth option up front.

Would like to check out diouf first and if he is as good as we hope,then we can easily send either Kiko or Welbeck on loan.I would just hope that their footballing education continues in England rather than going out to the Italian or Spanish clubs.

Yea dont loan abroad, most probably the reason our youths end up not cutting it is because they're not adjusted to the English game and so they completely flop. Loan him to a lower league side or perhaps even Hull atleast that way he's kept happy and still playing the English way.

I agree. Going on loan and playing in a decent team would do wonders for his development.

he just scored a brilliant goal and now you want to send him on loan, is this wise, when you are struggling for strikers of quality.

because we like to banter with our local rivals JT. I'm sure it would probably be more appropriate for the likes of yourself and Merlin to be on these boards more often than us given the large numbers of rags that live in London, but what the hey....
