Rafael Da Silva and Fabio da Silva’s agent Cassiano Pereira has revealed that he is close to securing the long-term future of both the players. Fabio da Silva has been linked with a loan move away from Manchester United in order to gain experience.
Cassiano Pereira confirmed that his client has indeed signed for Premier league club QPR after deciding that a move back to Portugal will not be the best option right now. Playing at QPR will allow him to get Premier league experience according to Cassiano Pereira, who is also closer to securing a new long-term contract for Rafael Da Silva at Manchester United.
The twin brothers arrived at Manchester United when they were just 18 years old. Rafael Da Silva has established himself as one of the regular players at Manchester United, but Fabio Da Silva has struggled to do the same due to the presence of Patrice Evra in his position. Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson said prior to the close of the last season that he wanted Fabio Da Silva to gain experience by playing on loan at other clubs, with Portugal being the likely destination. However, Cassiano Pereira has confirmed that his client has signed for QPR on a season long loan deal.
‘He is a sought-after player because he is still young, and we think that his transfer to QPR was the best decision at the time. He preferred to stay in England to remain in touch with the country’s football style and so that he would not have a problem to adapt to it when he returned to United,’ said Cassiano Pereira about the future of Fabio Da Silva. Chelsea were extremely keen on signing Rafael Da Silva, but the Brazilian is all set to commit to a new long-term deal with Manchester United.
