Rafael: Tolisso perfect for Man Utd

Former Manchester United defender Rafael has backed the club's move for Corentin Tolisso.

Rafael played alongside the World Cup winning midfielder with Lyon.

Tolisso moved from the Ligue 1 club to Bayern Munich in 2017, but now the German giants are ready to sell.

"One of the best midfielders I've played with. I think he will be perfect for Manchester United. Hope he goes there," Rafael tweeted after reports broke stating Tolisso had opened discussions with the Red Devils.

Bayern have made Tolisso available for a very affordable £31m.

Inter Milan have also shown an interest.
