Manchester: Manchester United have announced that they have agreed a deal to sign Portuguese striker Bebe from Vitoria de Guimaraes for an undisclosed fee.
The striker, whose full name is Tiago Manuel Dias Correia, was raised in an orphanage and has represented Portugal at the Homeless World Cup after spending time on the streets as a child.
He only joined Guimaraes on a five-year deal from Estrala da Amadora five weeks ago, with reports suggesting that United have met the release clause in his contract.
United confirmed the deal on their official website this evening, with the player still to undergo a medical later this week.
"Manchester United is pleased to announce it has reached agreement with Portuguese club Vitoria de Guimaraes for the purchase of 20-year-old striker Tiago Manuel Dias Correia (better known as 'Bebe') for an undisclosed fee, subject to a successful medical in Manchester later this week. Personal terms have been agreed with the Cacém-born (Portugal) forward."
Bebe is the third player to arrive at Old Trafford this summer after the signings of Chris Smalling from Fulham and Javier Hernandez from Chivas.
