Injuries limited the Brazilian to just 10 Premier League appearances last season, and he found his route back into the starting XI blocked by Antonio Valencia upon his return to full fitness in the spring.

Rafael’s future at Old Trafford looks extremely uncertain as Torino’s Darmian is set to complete his move to the club as soon as he passes a medical [via BBC Sport] and is likely to be installed as the club’s first choice right-back next season.

However, the 25-year-old appears to be willing to fight for his future on Manchester and posted a picture via his official Instagram account to show how excited he is about the new season.

It remains to be seen whether Rafael will be a part of the United squad for the new season as there has been rumours [via Guardian Sport] that Super Lig champions Galatasaray are closing in on his signature.

Beyond Galatasaray, the Daily Mail have also reported that Napoli and Fiorentina are also keen on the international full-back.
