Bebe to join Pacos de Ferreira on loan

Manchester United winger Bebe has left the club on a season-long loan to join Portuguese side Pacos de Ferreira, according to the Daily Mail.

The 22-year-old signed a five-year deal upon his arrival at Old Trafford in 2010 after Sir Alex Ferguson paid £7.4m for his services only to later admit to never having seen him play.

The Portugal under-21 attacker conceded his time at the club has been a bit of a nightmare so far - he's yet to start a single Premier League game for the reigning champions.

Back in April, Bebe said: "‘I never took Manchester United seriously and never understood a word about what Alex Ferguson was saying.

"I thought, “I’m here, I’m doing well and I don’t have to try hard every day. It was my fault. I was messing around too much”

David Moyes brought in Marouane Fellaini on deadline day - completing the deal with minutes to spare as the United boss looked to bolster his central midfield options.

But he does not view Bebe as part of his first-team squad, and has allowed him to challenge for first-team football back in his native Portugal.

He played a handful of under-21 games for the club during pre-season, but with Antonio Valencia, Wilfried Zaha, Ashley Young and Nani all battling for two starting places, Bebe was never likely to get anywhere near the United first-team.

He has two years left on his original United contract.
