Lyon have announced their acquisition of Manchester United full-back Rafael, who has agreed on a four-year contract with the Ligue 1 side.

The right-back passed his medical earlier today and will be officially presented to the media by the end of the week.

After coming up through the youth ranks at Fluminense, Rafael has been at Manchester United since 2008, but fell out of favour last season under current boss Louis van Gaal, and was faced with a tough task getting back into the team after their summer acquisition of Matteo Darmani from Torino.
