Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson still believes in the quality of Kiko Macheda, insists his agent.

Macheda is again being linked with a move away from United next month.

Giovanni Bia told TMW: "He is a guy who has had some physical problems, but Ferguson continues to believe that he can become a top player. We need to find an ideal situation for him right now.

"I feel we must exclude a return to Italy, he could probably do better in the Spanish Liga, which is more technical and less physical."
