Star Macheda in line for five-year contract

Federico Macheda could be offered a five-year contract by Manchester United as soon as he turns 18, according to his agent.

The Italian youngster came off the bench to score a dramatic winning goal in stoppage time against Aston Villa just over a week ago.

On Saturday he did it again, snatching the decisive goal at the Stadium of Light to ensure that his side remain on top of the Premier League.

Macheda's agent Giovanni Bia believes that Sir Alex Ferguson will do everything he can to keep the 17-year-old at Old Trafford for a number of years.

"When he's 18 we'll talk again," Bia told Sky Italia. "I think Manchester will ask us to sign a five-year deal and I think that would be logical because it makes no sense to lose a lad at 21. We haven't talked about figures."

Macheda will celebrate his 18th birthday in August.
