Recent reports have suggested the Brazilian club were preparing lure the 23-year-old back to his native homeland the end of the season.

Just last month, Rafael’s agent, Cassiano Pereira, denied he had been contacted by Corinthians and admitted any move would be ‘difficult’.

However, the rumours have continued to persist and Rafael was forced to fend off the rising speculation.

"I am not thinking about leaving Manchester United, especially since I did well last season," Rafael 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."
