Federico Macheda has been at Manchester United since 2007 but it seems that his time in England could be coming to an end.
The Roman marksman grew up in Lazio's youth system but he walked out on the Biancocelesti for Manchester United somewhat controversially when he was 16.
Life in England hasn't exactly panned out as Macheda would have hoped and he has made only sporadic appearances for United.
Sampdoria are said to be keen to welcome Macheda back even though he didn't find the net during his 14-game loan spell there and former side Lazio could also step in.
"We are trying to convince United to let Federico go now rather than in June," Bia told Tuttomercatoweb.
"There are various Serie A teams looking at him. For example Sassuolo are looking at him but for now there are no talks."
Since representing Italy at Under-21 level, Macheda's stock has dwindled and he will be hoping to re-launch his career back in his homeland.
