Bayern Munich full-back Rafinha has revealed that he turned down moves to England and Spain during the summer transfer window.
Chelsea were strongly linked with a move for the 32-year-old in the latter stages of August, before the Premier League champions brought Davide Zappacosta to Stamford Bridge.
According to Rafinha, he had the opportunity to leave the Allianz Arena for either the Premier League or La Liga during the summer, but the Brazilian decided to remain in Germany.
"Bayern's bosses know I already had offers from England and Spain before the season started," Rafinha told Bild. "I have Bayern in my heart and I always give 100%, they can always count on me. Therefore, I think those responsible understand that I really want to play, otherwise I will have to think about my future."
Rafinha has won five Bundesliga titles and one Champions League during his time at Bayern.
