Macheda signs new contract with Man United

Manchester United striker Federico Macheda has signed a contract extension with to keep him at Old Trafford until 2014.

The Italian arrived at United in September 2007 as a 16-year-old from Lazio, and hit the headlines in April when he scored an injury-time winner on his debut against Aston Villa.

And after coming on as a substitute for Dimitar Berbatov in United's 2-0 defeat of Tottenham in the Carling Cup on Tuesday night, Macheda is keen to become a more regular member of Sir Alex Ferguson's side.

"I am very happy to commit my future to Manchester United," he said. "I really enjoyed myself last season when I came on and I hope to get more chances like that and contribute to the team's success."

After seeing his youngsters see off Spurs with relative ease, courtesy of a brace from Darron Gibson, Ferguson was pleased to secure Macheda's signature.

"We are delighted by the new four-year deal," he said. "Everyone at the club recognises the fantastic talent he has and we hope to see that develop in the next years, so he becomes a well rounded player."
