Man Utd rejected Wolves approach for Macheda loan

Wolves boss Mick McCarthy moved for Manchester United striker Kiko Macheda last week.

Wolves boss Mick McCarthy moved for Manchester United striker Kiko Macheda last week.

The Express & Star says McCarthy attempted to strengthen his attack before last week’s cut-off by enquiring about taking Manchester United striker Macheda on loan.

But United boss Sir Alex Ferguson wanted the 20-year-old Italian to go somewhere where he would be guaranteed regular first-team football, something Wolves could not promise.

Wolves also considered a move for 6ft 3ins Daryl Murphy but the gangly striker, who has a year left on his contract at Celtic, instead joined Ipswich on loan.
