QPR close to Macheda loan

Manchester United striker Federico Macheda is set to join Queens Park Rangers on loan in January.

Macheda, 20, has struggled for first-team football since spending time on loan with Sampdoria last season, and Sir Alex Ferguson had said he wanted the Italian to get more games.

Wigan were said to be among the sides looking at Macheda, but agent Giovanni Bia says a move to Loftus Road is a near certainty.

Bia told skysports.com: "There was nothing concrete with Wigan. The club closer to Macheda is QPR. I think at 95% that Macheda will go to London, because he needs to play, and this is the only suggestion of a transfer to date.

"He'll go on a simple loan for six months, because Sir Alex Ferguson believes in him and wants to take him back to United at the end of the season. The other 5% of chance is that Macheda stays in Manchester."
