VIDEO: Has Manchester United flop discovered his true talent?

Bebe, who is on loan at Pacos de Ferreira, floundered at Old Trafford but has been spotted trying his hand at rapping in this bizarre clip.

Manchester United attacker Bebe will not be remembered all too fondly for his spell at the club after a string of poor performances, which ultimately led to him being loaned out to Portuguese outfit Pacos de Ferreira.

Bebe has actually revelled in his first-team chance at Pacos, scoring nine goals in 26 appearances across all competitions for his new side, a stark contrast to the two goals in just seven outings for United that he has managed since his 2010 transfer.

The 23-year-old arrived at United after then-assistant manager Carlos Queiroz had recommended the striker, who shot to fame after scoring four goals in six matches during the 2009 European Street Football Festival, to Sir Alex Ferguson, who duly spent an eye-watering £7.4m to sign the striker, with the fee believed to represent his buyout clause.

Just five weeks prior to his move to United he had joined Portuguese side Vitoria de Guimaraes but United acted swiftly to take him out of their hands with Real Madrid and SL Benfica rumoured to be sniffing around the frontman.

His United career subsequently turned into a nightmare, however, as it became abundantly clear that he was not good enough for elite level football. His time in Manchester also saw him embroiled in a police investigation regarding his transfer over anti-corruption procedures.

He was also initially rumoured to have taken part in the Homeless World Cup, but these claims have since been rubbished.

But it seems Bebe has other talents up his sleeve, judging by this video which appeared on the 101 Great Goals official Facebook page earlier.
