Sir Alex Ferguson has confirmed Bebe will make his Manchester United debut in Wednesday's Carling Cup tie at Scunthorpe United.
Bebe's £7.4million arrival at Old Trafford last month was one of the biggest shocks of the transfer window, with Ferguson admitting he had never seen the 20-year-old play.
The move to United capped a meteoric rise in Bebe's career and he is now primed to make his first appearance for the Premier League giants.
Ferguson is keen to give several of his younger players a chance at Scunthorpe as United start their quest to win the Carling Cup for the third successive season.
"We played a lot of young players last season and they all acquitted themselves well," Ferguson told the club's official website. "We'll do the same at Scunthorpe.
"A lot of my young players will play. Bebe is training very well. He'll be involved tomorrow night. Federico Macheda will as well.
"The Carling Cup's served us well over the last few seasons - it allows me to keep everybody happy in terms of giving people games and we've reached the last two finals, which has its obvious advantages.
"Playing at Wembley and competing for medals on the big stage is terrific for players' development."
Meanwhile, Bebe is confident he can make an impact for United after making his first appearance for the reserves last week.
Bebe, who may start on the bench at Glanford Park, said: "I am going to be a brilliant player for United.
"Sir Alex is very happy with me and wants me to train more and get in the first team."
