Warning 156 manual slips in 3rd gear... advice?

Hi all.

Am considering buying a 2001 1.6 manual t-spark. It's high mileage at 125k but is on for a good price. My only concern is that there is little history (cambelt alert!!) and I have been told that occassionally when driving in 3rd gear it slips into neutral. It does have nearly a years MOT and tax and is only on at 600 ono. I guess what I want to know is, is this a good deal??? Is the gear issue likely to be expensive, as I've heard a lot of horror stories about Alfa gearboxes (albeit mainly selespeed version)

Any advice appreciated!!!
