Manchester United striker Kiko Macheda has opened the door to a return to Lazio.

Macheda is on-loan at Stuttgart.

"I want to grow as a player and play with continuity to prove my worth," Macheda was quoted as saying by after Stuttgart's 2-0 home defeat in the first leg.

"Lazio? I went away very young and I have not kept relations with the current management.

"I would go back, if there was a possibility in the future."
