LONDON, Aug 12 (Reuters) -- Manchester United completed its third signing of the offseason after securing a deal for striker Bebe from Portuguese club Vitoria de Guimaraes.

United's website said the 20-year-old had agreed personal terms and would undergo a medical later this week.

Manager Alex Ferguson has been keen to bolster his striking options and Bebe joins along with Mexico's Javier Hernandez, who scored in United's 3-1 defeat of Chelsea in the Community Shield at Wembley on Sunday.

The 6-foot-3 Bebe is rated as one of the top young talents in Portugal and will join compatriot Nani at Old Trafford.
