image for Man Utd sign homeless, penniless, shoeless Portugese!
Could be another potential Man Utd signing!

Determined not to spend a penny on world-class superstars Man Utd have been spending their funds on a completely different catagory of footballers.

Their latest signing is a definite sign that Man Utd refuse to pay horrendous amounts of cash on established stars, NO, they will only spend money on "nobodies" who have grown up in slums around the world, can kick a ball and have potential!

Their latest prodigy is a typical example: Bebe is his name and he's never been heard or seen of before. He was doing keep ups in the slums surrounding Lisbon, barefoot, homeless and destitute so naturally he's good enough for Man Utd.

United's talent scouts are scouring the global slums searching for raw talent such as Bebe, or even a new Ronaldo? and are only prepared to pay "scrooge" amounts (compared to Man City)

Man Utd are setting the trend for other clubs who also have tremendous debt burdens? (maybe that's the real reason?)

Bebe, Utd fans wish you all the best in your new found glory, but they much would have preferred Sir Alex to sign Zlatan Ibrahimovic, David Villa, Wesley Snijder or even someone who has at least achieved something apart from playing in the "Homeless World Cup barefoot!"

Yankee owners my butt!
