Ferguson has revealed United have first refusal on Giuseppe Rossi if Villarreal want to sell him in the future. Apparently Ferguson tried his best to get Rossi to stay at the club but the player wanted first team football.

"We have put a clause in the contract, so maybe he will come back to us at some stage," Ferguson told Pravda TV.

"We wish Giuseppe well and we know he will do well at Villarreal.

"It was a difficult decision to let him leave. I had several meetings with him to try and convince him that he would get plenty of football with us this season and all he needed was a bit of patience.

"But, having been on loan last season, he wanted first-team football all the time."
