ManU May Buy Rossi back.

Sir Alex Ferguson has revealed that United inserted a clause in Giuseppe Rossi's contract which would allow the Reds to buy the striker back from Villarreal.

The Italian Under-21 international had several meetings with Sir Alex and was told that he would be given opportunities at Old Trafford, but the former Parma youngster wanted regular first-team football.

"We had several meetings with him to convince him that he would get plenty of football here, but that he may have to be a bit patient," explained the boss.

"He wanted to have a go at first-team football, so it was a difficult decision.

"We wish him well, he is a good lad. He has always been a good professional. He's going to a good club. We sold Diego Forlan to Villarreal and he recently left for Atletico Madrid. It's a well-run club with good ambitions.

"I know he'll do well. We've got a clause in his contract where he could come back to us at some point. We covering oursleves in every way."
