Ring the bells and wake the children -- the King of Old Trafford, Portuguese sensation Bebe, is returning to Manchester United after his almost not completely terrible loan spell in Turkey. The 21-year-old Sir Alex Ferguson bought sight unseen for £7.4 million in August of 2010 has yet to be unloaded and never spoken of again, so he will now rejoin Man United until that inevitably happens.
And how did his year-long loan with Besiktas go? Well, you can't improve on perfection. From the Telegraph:
However, an early season cruciate ligament injury halted Bebe's early progress at Besiktas and he fell foul of coach Tayfur Havutcu last month when he was fined and banished to train away from the first-team after allegedly breaking a curfew in the build-up to a derby game against Galatasaray.
United are understood to be prepared to sell Bebe should they receive a suitable offer for the Portugal U-21 winger, but with the player just two years into a five-year contract, he is likely to rejoin the first-team squad this summer unless a buyer can be found.
Jokes aside, it would be in Man United's best interest to keep Bebe around for a long, long time. The year he was with the club, it won the Premier League title. The year he was sent away, Man City won for the first time in over 40 years. Clearly Bebe is a shepherd of success and dealer of cruel punishment.
