Rovers sign Manchester United's Macheda

Rovers have completed the loan signing of Manchester United striker Federico Macheda on an initial month loan

The Italian appeared at the clubs Cantley Park training ground this morning

Macheda watched Rovers’ goalless draw at Huddersfield Town on Saturday from the directors’ box at the John Smiths Stadium.

And today he penned a temporary switch as he looks for a secure future with his contract at United in its final year.

The 22-year-old has effectively been frozen out at Old Trafford despite looking set to become United’s next wünderkid when he burst onto the scene in 2009.

Macheda came off the bench as a 17-year-old to net winners in successive games for United, including a last minute stunner against Aston Villa that truly brought him to the public’s attention
