Bayern Munich defender and long-term Chelsea target Rafinha has revealed that he rejected the overtures of some Premier League clubs to stay in Germany.
The 30-year-old Brazilian right-back was a strong target for the Blues over the last few seasons, but opted to instead stay in the Bundesliga.
However, he has revealed that he was intrigued by England’s top flight.
As quoted on the Sky Sports website, he said: “The Premier League is a top league.
“But I have two more years at Bayern and I plan to stay here for at least this period.
“My agent has told me that he has been approached by some English clubs.”But I decided to renew my contract with Bayern and those English clubs went away.”
