Manchester United have taken a major hit on Bebe after selling him to Benfica.

The Daily Mail says the Portuguese forward's nightmare spell at Old Trafford is finally over as he joins Benfica in a deal worth up to £2.4million - four years after United's legendary boss spent £7.4million on him without even watching a video.

The deal represents a £5million loss on the initial investment - but Reds fans will just be happy to see their most ridiculed purchase through the exit door.

United also will be in line for a 50% sell-on fee of any future transfer deal for the 24-year-old.
