Manchester United are intensifying their interest again in Real Betis dazzler Alvaro Vadillo.

United boss Sir Alex Ferguson is a big fan of the 18 year-old winger and considered buying the youngster last year before he suffered a serious knee injury.

Vadillo is now fully recovered and beginning his comeback with Betis B in the Segunda Division B.

Cadena Ser says United scouts are again present at Betis games to track Vadillo's progress this month.

The winger's contract carries a €3 million buyout clause - which will jump to €20 million when he makes one more appearance for Betis' first team.
