VIDEO: £7.4m United flop scores twice but relegation battle goes to play-off

Bebe bagged a brace to take his tally of goals to 11 for the season yesterday.

Portuguese youngster Bebe was infamously 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 a loan-spell with Besiktas ended in injury and discipline nightmare.

After a spell at Rio Ave last term he has again returned to Portugal on loan this campaign - with Pacos de Ferreira.

And he has had a stunning 2014, really finding his stride with the club. Unfortunately it could have been in better circumstances. Pacos are battling relegation from the top flight in Portugal and yesterday they played their final game of the season.

Bebe was in great form, scoring twice to take him to 11 goals for the season, but they still lost the tie 4-2 against Academica.

Luckily for them, relegation rivals Olhanense also lost - and therefore they finished bottom of the table based on results against each other this campaign - both teams finishing on 24 points.

For Pacos the fight is not yet over. They are now set to play a relegation/promotion play-off against Desportivo Aves in the coming weeks and will need Bebe firing on all cylinders. As for his future at United, he has scored 11 goals for a team who finished second from bottom in Portugal and is tipped for a World Cup spot this summer - he might just be worth a roll of the dice.
