Bebe pining for Man Utd return

The Portuguese, who netted twice for Pacos de Ferreira in a 3-1 victory over Arouca on Sunday, still harbours hopes of making an impact at Old Trafford

Manchester United attacker Bebe is still hopeful that he has a future at Old Trafford, though he admits that the Red Devils have yet to discuss his long-term role with the club.

The Portuguese forward, who joined United in 2010, has spent the season on loan with Pacos de Ferreira in his homeland, where he has enjoyed an excellent season.

The 23-year-old has nine goals in 31 appearances this term and, after a two-goal haul against Arouca on Sunday – which included a superb flick-and-volley – Bebe is now keen to prove his worth back at his parent club.

“I am in good form and I hope to remain this way,” the former Portugal Under-21s international told the media.

“I still hope to return to Manchester United but nobody from the club has spoken to me.”

Bebe was signed by Sir Alex Ferguson on the recommendation of former assistant Carlos Queiroz just five weeks after the youngster bagged a first professional deal with Vitoria de Guimaraes.

Despite a €9 million price tag, he never made an impact at United, making just seven appearances for the reigning Premier League champions.
