Rafael may have played his final game for Manchester United after X-rays revealed the full-back suffered cracked ribs during Mondays’ draw against Leicester City whilst playing for the development side.
Rafael clashed with Anthony Knockaert taking an accidental knee to the chest towards the end of the first half and subsequent tests show the full-back will miss around 6 weeks. Rafael has been nothing more than a bit part player this season following another injury ravaged campaign and the Brazilian now looks surplus to requirements at Old Trafford as Louis van Gaal has been promised another transfer war chest. Chris Smalling recently signed a new contract and with Phil Jones expected to follow suit Rafael's future is becoming increasingly uncertain along with Jonny Evans who may have to make way with Mats Hummels from Borussia Dortmund being touted as the next big money signing.
