Bebe has confirmed to fans during a Manchester United reserve team friendly fixture against Southport that he will be leaving the club this summer, according to the Daily Mail.

The £7 million flop, who was a surprise arrival at Old Trafford under former boss Sir Alex Ferguson in 2010, has never settled in Manchester, and it always seemed likely he would be sold this summer.

Left out

He was left behind from Manchester United's tour of America which seemed to be the final nail in the coffin of his career with the Red Devils, and now the player himself has seemed to confirm his impending move.

According to the Daily Mail, Bebe was asked by a fan at half-time of Manchester United reserves game against Southport when he was substituted off about whether he would be staying or going. The paper claims that the Portuguese flop clearly responded: "I go, I go".


Bebe, who has been out on loan on numerous occasions and hasn't played for Manchester United in four years, has been linked with a move to both Valencia and Benfica. An agreement is believed to have been agreed in principle with the latter, who could complete the transfer shortly.

The Mail say that new boss Louis van Gaal does not consider Bebe to be part of his first team plans this season, and is happy for him to leave. The 24-year-old has only played two Premier League fixtures for the Red Devils in his time at the club, although he did have a relatively successful spell on loan with Paços de Ferreira last term, where he played 27 league games while scoring 11 goals.


Bebe is likely to be just one of a handful of players leaving Old Trafford this summer as Van Gaal looks to remodel his squad following a disastrous campaign last time round. The likes of Nani, Chris Smalling, Ashley Young and Wilfried Zaha are amongst 10 players who are fighting for their futures, which will be decided before the start of the new season.

Along with those players potentially leaving, there could be some new faces at Manchester United too; Arturo Vidal and Mats Hummels have been targeted, while a deal for Thomas Vermaelen could still go through too.
