Since signing for Manchester United in 2010, Bebe has made just seven appearances for the Premier League champions.
The Portuguese attacker spent last season on-loan at Primeira Liga side Rio Ave and he told Correio da Manha that securing a permanent move home, preferably with Sporting, would suit him.
"I would love to play for Sporting," Bebe stated.
"The club would suit me and it is an ambition of mine to play for Sporting."
Disappointed after his spell with the Red Devils, Bebe hopes Sporting will provide a more suitable platform for his talents to flourish.
"They put faith in young players [at Sporting], appreciate them, and play an attractive game that suits my style," he said.
"It is a club that can grow. I haven't found that in England."
