Rumour: Sporting Braga keen on signing Manchester United's Bebe
Portuguese striker Bebe could finally cut ties with Manchester United after Sporting Braga expressed their interest in signing the player.
Sir Alex Ferguson signed the youngster for £7.3 million from Vitoria de Guimaraes back in 2010 on the recommendation from his former assistant Carlos Quieroz. Since then, Bebe has somewhat been of an embarrassment in a Manchester United shirt making only seven appearances for the Red Devils.
The 23-year-old had a fruitful spell with Pacos de Ferreira scoring 12 goals in 27 games including a screamer of a free kick against Desportivo Aves and has now caught the attention of Braga.
Bebe, who played a big part in keeping Pacos de Ferreira in the top flight, recently expressed his desire to permanently seal a move with a club in his homeland.
The striker, who hasn’t appeared in a single Premier League match for United, will most likely never be a part of the first team with the likes of Wayne Rooney, Robin Van Persie, Danny Welbeck, Javier Hernandez and now James Wilson in the fray so a move away from Old Trafford would be best for both parties.
