Giovanni Bia, the agent of Manchester United striker Federico Macheda, admits that he expects his client to leave Old Trafford in January to find regular first-team football.

The agent of Federico Macheda has admitted that his client may be forced to leave Manchester United in search of first-team football.

The 21-year-old has been loaned out to Sampdoria and Queens Park Rangers during the last two seasons, with competition stiff for a place in a star-studded United attack.

Macheda's representative Giovanni Bia said that he will meet with Sir Alex Ferguson this week to discuss the situation.

"For Federico, it's very difficult to break through here, it might be better that that he leaves in January," he told Itasportpress.

"He wants to play more and if that cannot happen at United, then we must find a solution.

"I'm with Sir Alex this week and I hope he understands the situation, it makes no sense to keep a 21-year-old striker on the bench."

Macheda has been in impressive goalscoring form for United's Under-21 side in the early weeks of this season, leading to rumours of a loan move to Watford.
