Ferguson has revealed that he passed up the chance to sign in 2010, instead opting to sign Bebe.

The Portuguese attacker is one of Sir Alex’s most enigmatic signings, joining for £7.4m in 2010. Failing to impress in his showings, has undergone a number of loans and currently finds himself back in Portugal with Paços de Ferreira.

An unknown quantity back in 2010, decided to pursue the player but it meant missing out on another, then Lille star Eden Hazard.

With the move turning out how it has and Hazard impressing for when joining 2 seasons later, has admitted that perhaps he didn’t quite get this one right.

Speaking to Portuguese paper A Bola, the former manager said:

“With feet like his, was able to score 20 goals per season.

“We saw Hazard, but instead hired Bebe. Who would have bet that would not work?

“It is clear that he had a difficult childhood wandering the streets of Lisbon.”
