Macheda to stay at United

Teenager not about to return to Sampdoria

Federico Macheda will not be leaving Manchester United this summer, according to the forward's agent.

Macheda: Staying at United

The 19-year-old moved to Sampdoria on loan in January, but the club were relegated from Serie A and he failed to score in 14 appearances.

However, Javier Hernandez's emergence has seemingly left Macheda with little opportunity at Premier League champions United.

It was therefore suggested that Macheda may return to Sampdoria in their attempt to win promotion back to the Italian top flight.

But his agent, Giovanni Bia, told TMW: "Macheda will remain at Manchester United."
