New Deal For Rafael And Loan Move For Fabio

Rafael and Fabio’s agent, Cassiano Pereira, has been speaking to Estadao ESPN about the twins’ future.

“Rafael is very happy to stay at Manchester United, who are one of the giants of world football and always play in Europe’s biggest competitions,” he said. “Manchester United are the club that opened the door to Europe for him. He is loved, respected and has prestige at the club. We are all very happy that he is renewing his contract.”

Fabio had been linked with a loan move to Benfica but it looks as though he will be following Federico Macheda with a loan move to QPR. Despite offers from the continent, Fabio has sensibly opted to stay in the Premier League.

“Fabio is a promising player and he needs to play. Because of that, Alex Ferguson suggested that he be loaned out to get more experience,” he added. “He is a sought-after player because he is still young, and we think that his transfer to QPR was the best decision at the time. We received some offers from Germany and Portugal, but he preferred to stay in England to remain in touch with the country’s football style and so that he would not have a problem to adapt to it when he returned to United.”

    Maybe Football is a game to some,warfare to others,its about pride,passion,love and territory.You soon learn that as a 16yr old being chased by 30 Geordies through the streets of Newcastle.
    It was all about showing others we were the Red army and weren’t afraid to go on their patch and support the team we all love,it was a fucking rush.
    You can’t get that attachment from a Tv or video screen because it takes the emotion and comradery out of the equation,just becomes stats and players just become numbers.The biggest thing i miss about England is watching Utd live,it gets in your blood and becomes part of who you are.
