Rafael Da Silva Happy to Stay at Lyon despite Besiktas Interest

Submitted by content on Mon, 08/13/2018 - 13:46

Lyon defender Rafael Da Silva claims that he is extremely happy at the French club and is not looking for a move away from the French team. There are reports that Besiktas may be making a move for the defender, who has been with Lyon since 2015. Besiktas is a hotbed when it comes to possessing Brazil footballers and it is one of the reasons behind Besiktas making a move for the defender. However, it would be extremely difficult to call Rafael Da Silva as a Brazilian at heart, as he has been playing in English football for a majority of his career.

After starting out with Fluminense as a teenager, Rafael Da Silva moved to English football back in 2008 when he was still in his teen ages. The small was crucial in taking away the Brazilian mentality from the right back, whose younger twin brother is also part of the game. After spending several campaigns with Manchester United, Rafael Da Silva took the difficult decision of moving to Lyon in 2015 so as to get more first-team football. This has proven to be the case with the defender making 72 appearances for the French team in the last three seasons, while he only managed 109 league games for Manchester United in almost twice that period.

France international Alexandre Lacazette is hoping to make a key impression for Arsenal during the final stages of the season. The Gunners are in the driving seat to reach the last four of the Europa League after beating CSKA Moscow 4-1 in the quarter-final first-leg, and the Frenchman is aiming to guide the club to trophy success in Lyon next month.

Speaking to reporters, he said: “I missed football a lot during my break. I have come back stronger, but it is true scoring on my comeback on Sunday (against Stoke) helped. It's important for me because in the (Premier) league, Aubameyang is going to play, unless the coach plays the two of us together. But I know in European competition, it is the chance to show plenty of things for me. I am desperate to win this trophy and, when we play like we did tonight, we can go far.”

Speaking to the French press, Fekir’s representative admitted the 24-year-old does have plans to plying his trade for a top-ten European club in the future.

He said: “First and foremost we would respect Lyon. We know that, at some point, we may have to ask questions about a move.

Nabil has the personal goal of being part of a top ten club in Europe, and he has that potential, but a career is built little by little.”
