Bebe would prefer to stay away from Manchester United

Manchester United's on loan forward Bebe has said he would prefer to join one of Portugal's biggest clubs if given the choice.

The 23-year-old has become the butt of all jokes at Old Trafford after penning a five-year contract in 2010 following a £7.4m move from Vitória de Guimarães in 2010.

From the get go, Bebe never looked like making the grade at Manchester United and has subsequently spent three seasons away from the club. 

He again failed to impress with Besiktas and Rio Ave but has seemingly come of age at Pacos de Ferreira this term. Bebe picked up the club's player of the season award after scoring 11 goals - many of them spectacular - to keep them in Portugal's top flight.

With his form improving, reports are that Louis van Gaal may be willing to give Bebe a chance to impress at Manchester United in pre-season, but Bebe himself has hinted he would rather stay in Portugal.

He does, however, reiterate his desire to leave matters regarding his future to his agent.

He told A Bola: "I don't know anything concrete (about my future).

"I have heard about Braga and Sporting Lisbon, but they are just rumours. I will leave all of that to my agent.

"If I could choose to stay in Portugal, it would be to play for a big club. I think anything else wouldn't be very favourable to me.

"However, as I have already said, I know that my agent will certainly sort out my life."
