United are understood to be prepared to sell Bebe should they receive a suitable offer for the Portugal U-21 winger, but with the player just two years into a five-year contract, he is likely to rejoin the first-team squad this summer unless a buyer can be found.
The defining moment of Bebe’s faltering Man United career came when the Premier League side took on Crawley Town in an FA Cup encounter. The Portuguese striker, who was famously purchased by Sir Alex Ferguson off the back of some bad advice and a DVD, had finally got himself a full 90 minute run out and it was against then non-league opposition who he would expect to register a goal or two against.
It didn’t work out that way and the forward spent 90 minutes running around like a headless chicken, and proving once and for all he was well and truly out of his depth. That was in February 2011 and he hasn’t played a minute of football for the Old Trafford side since.
The question is, can Man United persuade any club on the face of the planet to pay actual money, not magic beans, for the 21 year old? It seems highly unlikely that Ferguson will get a fraction of the £7.4m he invested in Bebe in August 2010. Perhaps it would be easier to just rescind his contract and send him on his way?
