Bebe heading back to Old Trafford after loan spell at Besiktas

Manchester United are expecting £7.4million flop Bebe back for pre-season training following the Portuguese winger’s ill-fated spell in Turkey.

United loaned the 21-year-old to Besiktas last summer and were hoping it might lead to a permanent deal.

But Bebe tore the cruciate ligament in his knee and was then fined by coach Tayfur Havutcu and ordered to train with the reserves on his return to fitness after he broke a club curfew by going to a nightclub before last month’s game against Galatasaray.
His surprise move to Old Trafford from Vitoria de Guimaraes two years ago is still being probed by anti-corruption police in Portugal over concerns that much of the fee remains unaccounted for, but it seems highly unlikely the Portugal Under-21 international will play for United again.

Meanwhile, Juventus are set to confirm the signing of United’s promising young midfielder Paul Pogba.
