Official: Rafael leaves Manchester United for Lyon

Brazilian defender Rafael has left Manchester United and joined Lyon after signing a four-year deal with the French outfit.

Lyon president Jean-Michel Aulas revealed earlier on Monday that the 25-year-old had arrived in France in order to finalise a move to Ligue 1, having fallen out of favour under Louis van Gaal and been omitted from United’s pre-season tour of the United States.

The story is too old to be commented.
