Rafael knows he must perform to the best of his ability if he is to extend his contract at Manchester United
Rafael knows he must perform to the best of his ability if he is to extend his contract at Manchester United.
Manchester United full-back Rafael hopes to remain at Old Trafford for the rest of his career.
Tottenham have given up their pursuit of Internacional striker Leandro Damiao - for now.
Spurs rekindled their interest in Damiao towards the latter stages of the transfer window after it emerged Jermain Defoe was struggling with a pelvic injury.
With his other only recognised hitman Emmanuel Adebayor away at the African Nations Cup, manager Andre Villas-Boas was thought to be interested in adding another striker to his squad.
Tottenham reopened negotiations with Internacional over the potential transfer of long-term target Damiao, but the Brazilian club do not want to sell the 23-year-old, who was top scorer at last year's Olympics, and it's understood no deal will be struck before the transfer deadline.
Spurs have a partnership with the club, however, and they could return with a fresh bid for the star this summer.
