Former Man United defender Rafael joins Istanbul Basaksehir

Istanbul Basaksehir have completed the signing of former Manchester United defender Rafael on a free transfer from Lyon. 

Rafael signs for Basaksehir on a free transfer after Lyon agreed to mutually terminated his contract which had just 12 months remaining. The Turkish club announced the Brazilian's capture in some style through their social media with a nod to one of the four main characters of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. 

"Olympique Lyonnais is happy to have been able to help Rafael by agreeing to release him from his last year of the contract and thank him for his professionalism and his state of mind," a statement from the club read.
