Will Kiko be going home? “No, I don’t think so”

Despite intense attempts from current Serie A leaders Lazio and other Italian club giants to lure Federico Macheda back to his Roman home, the 19 year old striker has made it clear that he has no plans to go anywhere. Having already made a handful of first team appearances for Manchester United this term, he believes he is an important part of Sir Alex Ferguson’s plans and remains determined to make his mark in the Premier League.

‘Black Italian’ can become a Ronaldo-Messi cocktail

There cannot be many footballers who have had so much written about them before they hit the age of 20 as has Inter Milan youngster Mario Balotelli. Yet apart from keen students of Serie A, very little is known about the striker who was born in Palermo to poor Ghanaian immigrants in August 1990. Some of the biggest clubs in the Premier League including the Manchester neighbours and Chelsea have been reported to be chasing his signature for weeks with even his own club now resigned to his imminent departure.
