Federico Macheda is still hoping to prove his worth at Manchester United, with there no desire on his part to secure a summer switch elsewhere.
The 20-year-old has been loaned out to Queens Park Rangers this season after struggling to hold down a regular role at Old Trafford.
He took in a similar spell with Sampdoria last season, with a stint back in his homeland intended to help the Italy Under 21 international develop his game.
A lack of goals has prevented him from making the desired impact at both Samp and QPR, but the youngster remains confident in his own ability.
Macheda believes he can still be a key figure in United's future and claims it is his intention to return to the North West at the end of the season and make a fresh attempt at forcing his way into Sir Alex Ferguson's plans.
"I am still owned by Manchester United," he told Radio Mana Mana.
"I don't know what the future will hold, but I will definitely go back to Sir Alex Ferguson's club at the end of my loan spell.
"My dream is to establish myself in a United shirt, even though I know that will be difficult.
"I will do all I can to make that happen."
