Manchester United striker Federico Macheda is 95 per cent certain to join Queens Park Rangers on loan in January, according to his agent.

Federico Macheda: Just six appearances so far this season

The Italian has made just six appearances in Sir Alex Ferguson's first team this season and has been linked with a move to Wigan in the January transfer window.

But Macheda's representative, Giovanni Bia, believes the current possibilities are either for a loan switch to QPR until the end of the season or to stay at United.

Bia told skysports.com: "There was nothing concrete with Wigan. The club closer to Macheda is QPR.

"I think at 95 per cent 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 five per cent of chance is that Macheda stays in Manchester."
