Rafael keen on a move away from Old Trafford, says agent.

Manchester United right-back Rafael was left out of the Reds' squad that flew to the United States tour on Monday, and we assume the Brazilian isn't in Louis van Gaal's plans.

However, the defender's agent Cassiano Pereira says his client is eager to move to Italy.

Pereira is quoted as telling Tuttomercato.web: "His contract expires in June 2016 and the coach, Van Gaal, said he isn't counting on him, so the player wants to leave and we are talking with more than one club about this.

"Roma would be a more than welcome destination. We would be more than happy to talk to the capital club. Italy would be a great opportunity, particularly as he has a Portuguese passport (and would not be counted as a non-EU signing).

"We are in contact with several clubs, but I can't reveal them. If Fiorentina call us, we'll be very happy to talk. The player is very interested in playing in Italy."
