Earlier this week Manchester United agreed a deal to loan Federico Macheda to Stuttgart until the end of the season and today was unveiled.
“I’ve come to VfB with great expectations,” he said. “I want to work hard on myself, train hard and prove myself to the coach. I of course want to make use of my chance and play. I would also be happy to stay longer. Who knows what might happen? I also want to learn to speak German as quickly as possible.”
Stuttgart finished 6th in the league last season but are currently 11th.
To mark the anniversary of United winning the Treble with a team that had academy products at the core, Made in Manchester is available for just £3 for today only.
