Manchester United want £6 million for striker Kiko Macheda.
The Manchester Evening News says Macheda is a candidate to be sold this summer.
He spent the second half of the campaign on loan at Sampdoria.
The 19-year-old Italian is highly regarded at United - but much like Gerard Pique when he left Old Trafford for Barcelona three years ago - Macheda's lack of first-team opportunities could see him seek a return to his homeland.
Ferguson would want at least £6m for a player he once described as having the star quality of Cristiano Ronaldo.
