Ex-Man Utd fullback Rafael targets Lyon exit for Brazil return

Former Manchester United fullback Rafael da Silva is set to leave Lyon.

Rafael has found his place at OL under threat from fellow fullbacks Léo Dubois and Kenny Tete.

As such, Le Progres reports Rafael is prepared to leave OL for a return home to Brazil.

The defender would be happy to sign for former junior club Fluminense.

Rafael has also been linked with a return to England, but he now favours a hometown move to Flu.
