A year after his twin Fabio left for Cardiff, Rafael da Silva has bid adieu to Manchester United by signing for French giants Olympique Lyonnais?
How much did Lyon pay for Rafael?
Man Utd did not disclose Rafael’s transfer fee, but it is widely rumoured to be around £2m. Great deal for Lyon given the valuations of some of the other players in the current market
What is the duration of Rafael’s Lyon contract?
He has signed a four year deal
Rafael made only six appearances for Man Utd last season after falling out of favour with new Red Devils boss Louis van Gaal. The arrival of Matteo Darmian from Torino pushed him closer to the exit door and after 170 appearances over 7 years for the Red Devils, he has opted for a switch to France.
