Man Utd desperate to help striker Terminated Ronaldo’s contract Now apparently employing Betinho
WHAT HAPPENED? Fans have flocked to Google to search for a 29-year-old who appears to be part of Manchester United’s squad for the second half of the season despite little experience suggesting he is ready to play in the Premier League. As of Tuesday night, he was listed in the Red Devils squad on the official Premier League website.
WHO IS BETINHO? The striker started in the Sporting CP academy and played a game with Brentford in the Championship in 2014-15. He also appeared at multiple youth levels for the Portugal national team. However, it’s been a long time since he washed up and recently played for the lower division Espinho.
WHY DID MAN UTD SIGN BETINHO? There is confusion as to whether the club actually signed him and gave him the number 11 shirt, or whether this is an error on the part of the Premier League website. In any case, the need for more forwards after the departure of Cristiano Ronaldo is a common thread in the January transfer market.
