The Portuguese star has been loaned by Benfica to the struggling La Liga outfit.

Manchester United finally saw their flop attacker Bebe leave the club in the summer - but he certainly did not go to a flop destination.

Bebe was snapped up by SL Benfica for a fee of up to £2.4 million.

The 24-year-old had an excellent second half of last season on loan at Pacos Ferreira and it seems that the Portuguese champions were impressed with his displays for the relegation threatened side enough to snap him up.

Bebe was signed by Sir Alex Ferguson for £7.4 million in 2010 in a sensational transfer - not least because Sir Alex Ferguson had to admit he had never seen him play and his transfer was at the recommendation of Carlos Quieroz.

However Bebe never looked like making the grade with the club and had loan-spells with Besiktas and Rio Ave - with injury and discipline problems also an issue throughout that time.

However Benfica has not quite been the great revival he would have hoped.

He has played just 25 minutes in the Portuguese League this season and has therefore been offered a chance for regular football. Just a few months after leaving United for Benfica he is on the move again, joining La Liga side Cordoba as a replacement for Japanese international Mike Havenaar.

Yesterday he was finally unveiled by the club as once again he tries to prove himself on loan.
