Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson is having his scouts revive their interest in Alvaro Vadillo.

The Real Betis winger was a serious target for Fergie last year before being struck down by a serious knee injury.

Vadillo has now fully recovered and is pushing for a first team return at Betis.

Barcelona scouts are already watching his recovery and will soon be joined by United representatives. Before his injury, Vadillo was being likened to Real Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo.
