Besiktas sign Manchester United's Bebe on loan - report

The Portuguese striker, who did not enjoy many opportunities during his first season in England, will become the fifth Portuguese player at Besiktas
Besiktas have secured the services of Manchester United striker Bebe on a temporary basis, news daily DHA claims.

The Portugal under-21 international joined the Red Devils only last summer from Vitoria de Guimaraes, but found chances in the first-team few and far between, spending most of the season in the reserve squad.

It is believed manager Sir Alex Ferguson is looking to loan out Bebe as he wants the 20-year-old to get more games under his belt before having a shot at regular football at Old Trafford.

Bebe is now poised to become the latest Portuguese player to move to Besiktas, who finished fifth in the Turkish league last season, following in the footsteps of Ricardo Quaresma, Hugo Almeida, Manuel Fernandes and Simao Sabrosa.
