Bologna are moving for Manchester United striker Kiko Macheda.

Gazzetta dello Sport says Bologna have made a loan offer for the Italy U21 international. Real Zaragoza are also keen.

Macheda has struggled for fitness and first team action this season and United boss Sir Alex Ferguson is keen to see the youngster gain first team experience elsewhere.

United's dumping from the FA Cup makes it even more likely that Macheda will be sent away on-loan this month.
