Manchester United have signed Brazilian twins Rafael and Fabio from Fluminense.

Sir Alex Ferguson has agreed a deal for the 15-year-old brothers to move to Old Trafford in three years’ time.

“He said to go there,” Rafael told Terra. “That it would be good for us.

“We met him in Manchester and he responded by giving us advice.

“Until then, we will wait to participate in the South American and World Under 17 Championships with Brazil,” he explained.

“We are very motivated. It is a great possibility to give a better life for our family.”
