Hot Read: Profile on new Manchester United signing Bebe

Sir Alex Ferguson had many pundits scratching their heads when he shelled out £7.5 million for Bebe (only slightly less than the fees paid for Rafael van der Vaart and Kenwyne Jones), a largely unknown forward toiling in Portugal’s semi-professional third division. The mystery only intensified when Ferguson admitted he had never seen Bebe, who grew up homeless, play either in person or on television.

Far be it for us to doubt Ferguson’s ability to judge young talent with his obvious mastery of the skill over the last two decades. Instead, we’ll just enjoy this comprehensive profile by Ian Ladyman (awesome last name!) of the UK Daily Mail, which uncovers the history of the mysterious Bebe.
