Clearly Bebe is currently enjoying his new lease of life with Pacos de Ferreira, who are now managed by former FC Porto and Portugal skipper Jorge Costa, as seen by his recent comments.
“I’m going through a very happy phase in my life and in my professional career. I still hope to return to Manchester, I have a year left on my contract. I’m going to continue giving it my all until the end of the season then we’ll see what happens,” Bebe is quoted as saying in the Daily Mirror.
And if the player keeps up his recent impressive run in front of goal—the attacker has netted nine goals in 22 league outings for Pacos so far this season—then who knows, maybe he will earn a recall to United this summer.
In fact, if the under-pressure United manager was watching his young charge’s latest sensational strike against Belenenses last Friday night—when Bebe somehow managed to beat former Port Vale and West Bromwich Albion youth-academy keeper Matt Jones with a 35-yard free kick that even his compatriot Cristiano Ronaldo would have been proud of—then his wish could soon come true.
