Rafael sends heartfelt goodbye to Manchester United fans

Rafael has sent a heartfelt goodbye to Manchester United fans ahead of his move to Lyon.

Rafael is already in Lyon and has undergone a medical tonight ahead of an expected announcement this week.

The Brazilian defender thanked the fans, club, staff and everybody involved at Man United but reserved a special thank you for Sir Alex Ferguson.

It was a touching message from a player who is much loved among the fan base having worn his heart on his sleeve ever since he arrived with his twin brother Fabio from Fluminese in 2008.

Whatever you say about Rafael, you cannot fault his passion for the club. In every single game, even if it was with the U21s, he gave 110% and wore his heart on his sleeve.

He knew what it meant to wear the shirt and play for United. You could see how much he loved it, right up until the very end of his career.

Good luck in Lyon, Rafael, and thanks for everything you did at United.
