Tiago Manuel Dias Correia, popularly known as Bebe, is a Portuguese football player who currently features for English and European powerhouse Manchester United. He plays as a striker.
Bebe, the son of Cape Verdean immigrants, was raised by his grandmother in Lisbon after his parents abandoned him when he was a young child. When he turned 12, he was placed in the care of the church by the court.
Bebe moved to a shelter outside Lisbon and was invited to play for the CAIS team in the 2009 European Street Football Festival in the Bosnian town of Foca. In the summer of 2009 he was signed by Portuguese second division club Estrela da Amadora.
One year later he joined Vitoria de Guimaraes after breaking his contract with Estrela, who failed to pay his wages. On August 11, 2010 Manchester United signed Bebe from Vitoria for an undisclosed fee, just five weeks after he had joined the Portuguese first division outfit.
However, Bebe failed to gel at Old Trafford and could not make much of an impact. He was farmed out on loan to Turkish giants Besiktas in June 2011 on a season-long loan deal but spent six months of that campaign on the sidelines after suffering a cruciate ligament injury.
Bebe was drafted back into the United first team at the start of the 2012-12 season.
