Bebe: Would welcome a return to Portugal with Sporting Lisbon

The 22-year-old was a shock arrival at Old Trafford in August 2010, with United splashing out over £7million on the untested Portuguese frontman.

He has struggled for game time in England and has spent much of the last two seasons out on loan at Besiktas and Rio Ave.

Bebe is now looking for a permanent move back to his homeland and has welcomed reports suggesting Sporting are keen on acquiring his services.

"I would love to play for Sporting," he told Correio da Manha.

"The club would suit me and it is an ambition of mine to play for Sporting.

"They put faith in young players, appreciate them, and play an attractive game that suits my style. It is a club that can grow. I haven't found that in England."

Bebe believes that 'many' coaching changes have held Sporting back of late, as they 'change direction', but believes the club has 'everything to enjoy a much better future'.

m not sure about this distance covered malarky, plus that stat comes with *since February attached to it, that's just 1 month. I mean I have 27 open cases I'm 'working on' at the moment but believe me others with 10 cases work harder than I do. I just got back from a pub lunch, scampi and chips (+4 pints) in case you were wondering.
