Hapless Manchester United striker Bebe is set to move away from the club on another short term deal with Portuguese side Pacos de Ferreira hopeful of wrapping up a deal, according to talkSPORT.

The 23-year-old, who joined the champions from Vitoria Guimarães in 2010 for a fee in the region of £7.5 million has so far failed to make any impact at all with the Red Devils. He was signed by Sir Alex Ferguson after he had famously never seen him play a single game, and has started just twice in three years.

He spent the entirety of the 2011/12 season on loan with Turkish giants Besiktas, but he made just four appearances there, failing to score once in an injury hit campaign.

He was then shipped out on loan again last term to fellow Portuguese side Rio Ave, where he fared slightly better scoring just once in 17 games – and he could now be set for another year in his homeland.

According to Portuguese newspaper O Jogo, Pacos de Ferreira manager Costinha wants Bebe to front the attack for his high-flying side, who managed to finish third last season, which secured them a place in Champions League qualifying.

The only instance likely to hold up the deal will be wages, but new United boss David Moyes would be open to letting Bebe leave again.
