Man Utd striker Bebe keen on Benfica switch
Manchester United striker Bebe has admitted that he is hoping to leave the club for Portuguese champions Benfica this summer, Sky Sports has reported.
Signed on recommendation from former assistant manager Carlos Quieroz in the summer of 2010, Bebe has struggled to make any significant impact throughout his time at Old Trafford, spending time on loan at Besiktas, Rio Ave and Pacos de Ferreira.
For his parent club, he has managed just seven appearances in the four seasons since he was signed, scoring goals against Wolverhampton Wanderers in the League Cup and against Bursaspor in the Champions League.
Benfica have registered an interest in Bebe thanks to his impressive performances for Pacos de Ferreira, where he scored 12 times. When asked about the interest from Jorge Jesus’ side, the 23-year-old was enthusiastic about the possible move. He said: "I am waiting for them to tell me when I can travel, as far as I know the clubs are talking.
It would be a good opportunity to relaunch my career. I'll certainly have more chances to play and show myself. I hope everything will be sorted out by the weekend. I want to put my head in place and work at 100 per cent, without any concerns."
He also revealed that he would not consider another loan move, adding: "That certainly won't happen again. Benfica are a golden shop window, they have revealed several players, I hope the same happens with me."
