In a vital week when United take on Villarreal in Spain could United rue the selling the young striker.

United sold Rossi to Villarreal last year in July 2007 for a figure in the region of 10 million Euros but Ferguson ensured that there was a buy-back clause in Rossi’s contract. This means he could see a return to United. Rossi left United after being unable to break into the first team at United, he managed to score 13 goals in 19 appearances for the reserves team.

Ferguson this week prompted transfer speculation to rise dramatically around the young striker after hinting at bringing him back to United. It certainly would be a much cheaper option for United than trying to clinch Tevez. Rossi has proved at Villarreal how top class he is and has become a prolific scorer for the Spanish club, 21 year old Rossi also has 3 years on Tevez who would be an older option for United.

Whether the transfer talk from Ferguson is really what he plans to do or if it is just to cover his back in the event that Rossi secures victory from Villarreal over United or possibly it is just a vain attempt to unsettle Rossi and pressure Tevez into performing at a higher standard, we will not know.

Ferguson already seems to have a striker dilemma, with Berbatov having a good 3 season left in him and Rooney who is still in his early stages at United does Ferguson really need to bring in any other strikers with the likes of Campbell and Welbeck in the background and keen to make first team appearances.
