The QPR owner Tony Fernandes has revealed that the club are looking to sign the Inter Milan goalkeeper Julio Cesar. The Brazilian international goalkeeper was one of the key members of the squad that won the Champions League back in 2010. However, his form has suffered in recent seasons and he has also been close to losing his spot in the international team. As a result, the 32-year-old believes that a move away from the San Siro will be beneficial in his career because it will help him rediscover his form that once made him the world’s best goalkeeper.
However, none would have thought that the Premier league club QPR would have imagined as a surprise destination after it was revealed by the owner that the club are in talks with the Brazil international over the proposed move. QPR have been extremely active in the transfer window bringing in the likes of José Bosingwa and Ricardo Carvalho. If Julius Caesar indeed signs for the club, then he could become the next major high-profile signing. Despite this new signings, QPR began the new season with a 5-0 home defeat at the hands of Swansea. It is something that the club will be hoping to recover from soon enough.
“None of those deals that have been reported have actually been done. We have been talking on many, many fronts. When they’re done we’ll announce them, if they’re done. But there have been many things we have been trying to do over the last eight days. I’d rather not comment. We are in discussions but QPR have got to run a sensible business. I think people out there think we are just throwing money and panic buying, all these kinds of words I hear. I think we are very calm at what we want,” said the QPR owner.
