Bebe set for first United steps

MANCHESTER UNITED summer signing Bebe is set to make his long-awaited first-team debut in tonight’s third-round trip to Scunthorpe.

The Portugal Under-21 forward, who was playing in his native country’s third division last season, has only appeared for United’s reserves since his £7.4m move. Critics are already queuing up to write off a player who United manager Sir Alex Ferguson admits he signed without ever having seen in action.
