The foward joined United from Portuguese club Guimaraes in a £7.4million deal in 2010 but did not make a single start in the Premier League.

He made just two appearances off the bench in the top flight, one FA Cup outing, two League Cup appearances and one in the Champions League.

United have confirmed that they will receive £2.4m for Bebe and are entitled to 50 per cent of any future transfer fees.

Bebe also spent time on loan back in Portugal with Rio Ave and Pacos de Ferreira and in Turkey with Besiktas.

He was left out of the senior United squad for their tour of the United States by new manager Louis van Gaal and his final appearance for the Red Devils was 45 minutes of action in a pre-season friendly with Southport on Tuesday.

Former United boss Sir Alex Ferguson admitted he had not seen Bebe play in the flesh before signing him.

ou can't blame De Gea for wanting to leave, he has enough to do in front of goal as it is as well as taking on the role of Man Utd's version of Derek Acorah in trying to contact and organise a defence that isn't there.
