Macheda can become the ‘new Van Basten’

The 17-year-old made a dream debut for Manchester United against Aston Villa on Sunday, scoring a crucial goal in stoppage time.

“Ever since he was a young boy, I have watched my boy and thought of Marco van Basten,” Pasquale told The Sun.

“In the past 18 months, he’s developed enormously, physically and technically at United.

“They have done a fantastic job.

“He looked like he had been playing for years – even alongside Cristiano Ronaldo, he did not look like a rookie.”
