Bebe's contract details at Manchester United revealed by Football Leaks

Bebe's move to Manchester United has been a bone of contention for some time now - and it's likely to be a talking point amongst the club's fans once more after Football Leaks released details of the Portuguese midfielder's contract.

The 25-year-old was signed by Sir Alex Ferguson for £7.4 million, despite the legendary boss admitting he'd never actually seen him play.

Police questioned Manchester United over the transfer back in 2012 as part of a criminal investigation, and the leaked documentation regarding his transfer is likely to raise further questions.

The paperwork reveals that Bebe was paid £500,000 in five separate instalments as a signing on bonus, and was given £8,000 in hotel expenses until he found a house in Manchester to live.

His bonus structure has also been revealed; the winger would earn £2.5 million if Manchester United won the Premier League, and more than £5 million if they won the Champions League.

Bebe, who later admitted he thought it was a 'joke' when told he would be joining the Red Devils, had three separate loan spells away from Old Trafford before joining Benfica. He is currently on loan at Rayo Vallecano.

Manchester United have more pressing concerns than finding out the source of the leaked documentation, with a game against Chelsea to come this afternoon. Louis van Gaal's side currently sit in fifth place, five points adrift of Arsenal in fourth.

While Chelsea are down in 13th, they are unbeaten in their last eight games and have won their last three outings against Manchester United at Stamford Bridge.

Is Bebe the worst player Manchester United have signed in the Premier League era?
