Manchester United flop’s Bebe and Anderson will get one final chance to impress after both being included on the club’s pre-season tour of the United States.
Both players were loaned out last season, with Bebe playing for Portuguese side Pacos de Ferreira, and Anderson spending the year at Fiorentina.
Portuguese striker Bebe, 23, scored 14 goals in 39 appearances for Pacos, as they struggled to 15th place in their national league, while Brazilian midfielder Anderson, 26, managed just seven appearances for Italian club Fiorentina, who turned down the opportunity to sign him on a permanent basis.
They have both been back in training at Carrington this week, and will be looking to impress incoming manager Louis van Gaal, as he undertakes a thorough evaluation of all of the players he currently has at his disposal.
Sir Alex Ferguson surprisingly signed Bebe in 2010, only five weeks after he had signed for Vitoria de Guimaraes, paying an undisclosed fee believed to be around £7.4m. Ferguson only met the player the day before he was signed, having been recommended him by former assistant Carlos Queiroz.
Bebe has so far made just seven appearances for the club, and has not been seen in a United shirt since February 2011, and the 1-0 FA Cup win over Crawley Town.
Anderson was signed from Porto in 2007, with the Old Trafford side paying in the region of £20m. He has made 179 appearances for the club in all competitions, over the course of a seven year spell. However, he has never truly lived up to his potential, and has so far managed just nine goals for the club.
