Metro have managed to get the majority of our regulars looking up with interest here in the Football Transfer Tavern as they seem to think that Rafael wants out of Old Trafford.
The defender might not be one of the best in the world, but he is certainly a fan favourite and we think United need to be looking to at least try and keep him at the club as a back up option when injuries and suspensions hit come next season, but according to the player’s agent, he wants to be playing football week in, week out.
We have to say, it is hard to disagree with that sentiment, with Rafael hardly in need of money at this stage in his career – but to be a vital part of a title winning team is something that all players want, no matter what their age.
Manchester United fans. Would you be gutted to see the player leave? Let us know your thoughts below.
