Manchester United flop Bebe is targeting a return to the club’s first-team when his loan at Pacos de Ferreira ends this summer, but will head to "another top team" if he can't secure it, according to reports in Portugal.
Portuguese newspaper A Bola relays quotes from the forward which suggest that he is hoping that his goals this season will have impressed manager David Moyes enough to allow him to return to the fold after his loan spell finishes. The 23-year-old has been ostracised for the few performances he has produced in a Red Devils shirt, and many rank him amongst the worst signings Sir Alex Ferguson ever made.
However, now on his third loan spell away from Old Trafford Bebe has hit 10 goals in 32 games, and reports yesterday claimed Moyes is sending scouts to keep an eye on him this weekend. The man himself will surely be desperate to impress, seen as though he considers a return to the United first team a top priority.
“At the end of the season I hope to get back to where I came from, Manchester, this is my first thought. If not I'm waiting for another top team," Bebe said, according to A Bola.
With United set for a summer revamp of a squad which has failed to consistently get results this term, the chances of Bebe being welcomed back into the first team are slim to none. The decision to offer him another chance would likely do little to endear Moyes to the fans further.
