Rafael denies interest in Brazil return
Manchester United defender Rafael da Silva insists he wants to stay at the club.
Recent reports have suggested that Corinthians were interested in taking the 23 year-old back to Brazil.
A return to his homeland could enhance Rafael's chances of an international recall, ahead of next summer's World Cup.
The full-back insists, however, that he intends to remain at Manchester United.
"I am not thinking about leaving Manchester United, especially since I did well last season," he told Lancenet.
"There is no reason to leave now, I am playing here, I am a starter and I don't intend to return to Brazil."
Rafael started a Premier League game for the first time on Saturday, as Manchester United came from behind to defeat Sunderland 2-1.
