Manchester United striker Federico Macheda will depart the club in January, according to his agent.

The agent of Manchester United striker Federico Macheda has revealed that his client will depart Old Trafford in the January transfer window.

The 21-year-old has not featured for the club in the Premier League this season due to a number of first-team players blocking his path to regular football.

He has spent recent loan spells at Queens Park Rangers and Sampdoria, and Giovanni Bia has admitted that the Italian will seek a move once more.

"Federico at this time is not finding space, and so it is clear that in January he will go away," Bia told

"But I don't think he'll be back again in Italy because usually in January clubs are looking for players that are already ready, unless there are teams with a quiet standing which want to do long-term projects with him."

Macheda joined United in 2007.
