Man United transfers: Third Old Trafford star set for Turkish transfer

Brazilian full-back set for Galatasaray switch.

Man United full-back Rafael looks set to complete a move to Super Lig side Galatasaray according to the Metro.

The 25-year-old Brazilian has found himself surplus to requirements at Old Trafford and may well be the third player to leave Man United for Turkey this summer.

Rafael found himself behind Luis Antonio Valencia last term and the arrival of Matteo Darmian from Torino has all but ended the wide-man’s career at Man United.

The former Fluminense defender’s agent Cassiano Pereira has made it abundantly clear that a transfer is imminent by stating;

‘Rafael wants to play at Galatasaray,’

‘It would be great if he plays in a Galatasaray jersey this season.’

Rafael moved to Man United in 2008 and has made 169 appearances for the Premier League side.

Galatasaray’s arch rivals Fenerbahce have already secured the signings of Man United pair Robin van Persie & Nani.
