Federico Macheda: Could be set to join Spanish side Elche on loan

The transfer has not yet been finalised but Elche president Jose Sepulchre says they have struck deals with both Macheda and United.

Macheda has been linked with a number of clubs after falling down the pecking order at Old Trafford this season following the summer arrival of Robin van Persie.

Wayne Rooney, Danny Welbeck and Javier Hernandez are also at the club and Macheda has been starved of opportunities, but Sir Alex Ferguson would still like him to play regularly.

Stuttgart expressed an interest in taking the Italian on loan earlier this week, but it appears Spanish second division side Elche are in pole position to secure his services.

Sepulchre told Efe: "The agreement between the three parties is complete, but we still cannot say that the player will come because nothing has been signed yet."

I

think all those names linked to United exits make sense. Kagawa has never really looked like hitting the form he had at Dortmund and Fellaini is radioactive after last season (even though I think he's been unfairly singled out for criticism). Nani and Anderson have had more than their fair share of chances so they are done, and Hernandez deserves better than warming a bench.

e'll be off to Spurs (or better) in January and I don't blame him. Looking forward to re-signing Grant Holt as his replacement though.
