Agent denies Corinthians rumours for Man Utd fullback Rafael

The agent of Manchester United fullback Rafael has rubbished reports linking him with Corinthians. Cassiano Pereira has poured cold water on the link, which has stated the Sao Paulo club were "optimistic" of getting Rafael at the end of the season.

"I see it as being quite difficult [signing Rafael].

"He's a starter, despite having been injured [and] nobody at Corinthians has talked to me.

"Suddenly, there is interest. If there is, it's great. All third parties and players see Corinthians very positively, but it's hard, because he is happy at United.... He is not even thinking about returning to Brazil."
