Macheda set to join Wigan
Wigan are hoping to take Manchester United striker Federico Macheda on loan. Sportsmail revealed manager Roberto Martinez’s interest last month but United’s run of injuries left Sir Alex Ferguson unwilling to release the 20-year-old Italian. However, Dimitar Berbatov’s return to action and the emergence of Will Keane could enable the deal to go through on January 1. Macheda’s agent Giovani Ba revealed he spoke to the United boss last week and expects the loan deal to be approved.
