Rafael set to join Istanbul Basaksehir on a free transfer from Lyon

L’Équipe have today moved to correct reporting from RMC that 30-year-old Brazilian right-back Rafael is on his way to Turkish side Besiktas.

In fact, the ex-Manchester United man is departing OL and on a free transfer after the club agreed to mutually terminate his contract which had just 12 months remaining to run.

Rafael is instead poised to join Istanbul Basaksehir and will travel to Turkey today for advanced talks with the outfit.

His entourage had been in conversations with a number of Turkish clubs, but it is Basaksehir who lead the way.
