Federico Macheda's agent has played down talk linking the Manchester United teenager with a move to Juventus. The 19-year-old striker joined United from Lazio in 2008 and has gone on to score three times in 20 appearances for Sir Alex Ferguson's side. Macheda has been linked with a return to his homeland recently, but his representative, Giovanni Bia, was quoted on as saying: "Interest from Juventus? These rumours are pleasant, but I do not think Macheda is for sale. "This is not the time to talk about the market. Federico is only thinking about the Under 21s and Manchester United. "He plays in a great team and he would think two thousand times before leaving, even if the club ever thought about selling him. "Sir Alex Ferguson always speaks well about him and declares him non-transferable. "It is normal that clubs take an interest in him also because he is very young. But he is happy in Manchester."
