Italian transfer news website Calcio Mercato look to have pulled off an exclusive that will likely sadden Manchester United fans.
Cassiano Pereira is quoted, during an exclusive interview with Calcio Mercato, saying the Brazilian full back twins are likely to leave Old Trafford in the summer.
In recent days Fabio and Rafael have been linked with moves to Italy, to Inter Milan and Napoli respectively.
Pereira is quoted as saying: “I know nothing about these rumours, I think it is just media speculation.”
The agent of the Man United pair continues: “I can say that will remain in Manchester until the end of the season, but in summer it is very likely that they can go.”
In truth, it would be no surprise were Fabio to leave United with his contract running out at the end of the season and failing to make a breakthrough into the first team at Old Trafford.
Rafael, meanwhile, is contracted to Manchester United until 2016 and despite injury problems is still clearly the Premier League champions best right back.
