Federico Macheda’s time in the English Championship club Cardiff City might be reaching it’s end as the Italian attacker has struggled trying to make an impact in the team of Russell Slade and his future is now being linked with Bristol City.
Injuries is something that has seriously affected Federico Macheda since he arrived to Cardiff City back in May of 2014, the Italian player has had to recover from surgery that he had in order to resolve a back problem. Even though Macheda is fully fit and ready to enter the pitch, he has been dropped to the sidelines and is serving as a substitute player more than anything else.
Macheda’s goal-scoring record since having arrived to Cardiff City isn’t a very impressive one as he has only scored 8 goals in 30 appearances.
Bristol City is positioned in the bottom drop zone of the English Championship League and they are looking for some offensive forces that can help pull them away from the relegation zone. This is an ideal opportunity for Bristol City to improve their attacking department while Cardiff City has the chance to offload one of their fringe players and Federico Macheda also has the chance of starting again with a new club where he might be able to spark his career to life.
An attacking player is one of things that is on the wish-list of Bristol City and Cardiff City can help solve this issue that the relegation threatened club has been facing.
If a transfer does indeed happen it will benefit all the parties involved. With only a few minutes of playing time in each match and sometimes not getting any time in the pitch at all, Federico Macheda should really start considering what to do with his career but staying with Cardiff City is not looking like a viable option.
