Club career

Early career

Having previously played for amateur side Loures, Bebé was signed by Segunda Divisão side Estrela da Amadora in the summer of 2009. [11] Regarded as the club's star player, [11] he finished the season with four goals in 26 matches. [12] However, Estrela were beset by financial problems and offered him around Europe for £125,000 but found no takers. [11] His former agent, Gonçalo Reis, revealed that Bebé was offered to PSV Eindhoven for free in May 2010, but PSV turned down the offer as they did not know anything about the player. [13] As their situation worsened, they stopped paying his wages, so he broke his contract and signed for Portuguese Primeira Liga team Vitória de Guimarães in the summer of 2010, on a free transfer. [14] His contract with Guimarães at first included a €3 million release clause, but this was increased to €9 million following his performances in pre-season games. [14] He finished with five goals in six friendly matches. [11]

Manchester United

On 11 August 2010, only five weeks after he signed for Vitória de Guimarães, Manchester United agreed an undisclosed fee with the Portuguese club for the transfer of Bebé. [15] The fee was reported to be around £7.4 million, believed to be the value of the buy-out clause in the forward's contract, [16] though reports in Portugal later claimed the fee was €9 million, of which the agent company GestiFute received €3.5 million and the club received €5.5 million, [17] [18] as third-party ownership was allowed in Portugal. It was also reported that Real Madrid and Benfica were interested in him. [19] Ferguson only met him the day before the transfer, [16] after being recommended to buy him by his former assistant Carlos Queiroz. [20] On 12 August, David Gill announced that Bebé would not be sent out on loan; instead, he would work with the first-team squad to prove his worth and to learn English. [21] The transfer was completed on 16 August, following Bebé's medical and the submission of the appropriate paperwork, [22] and he was unveiled to the media at a press conference the following day, along with fellow new signings Javier Hernández and Chris Smalling. [23] In 2012, it was reported that Portuguese police were investigating the transfer as part of anti-corruption procedures. Police questioned Bebé's former agent Reis and his current agent Mendes. [18] [24]

On 6 September, he was announced as part of the 25-man squad for Manchester United to play in the Champions League.
