Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson is reviving his interest in Benfica winger Ola John. Ferguson has been tracking John since he was first making his name at FC Twente and posted brother and chief scout Martin Ferguson to check on the youngster last week.

A Bola says Dutch sources suggest Martin Ferguson was in Barcelona to see their Champions League tie with Benfica - and John was his priority scouting target.

John finished the game man-of-the-match and after a slow start to life in Portugal is now proving his worth at Benfica.
