The Brazil international did seem set to move to Italy but the deal has yet to materialise and ambitious Napoli, under the management of new boss Rafa Benitez, have since been linked with Liverpool's Jose Reina.

Reports in Italy now claim the stumbling block has been Napoli president Aurelio De Laurentiis' failure to offer wages to meet Cesar's expectations.

"The final choice is in De Laurentiis' hands," the goalkeeper's agent, Josias Cardoso, told Radio Crc.

"We have not yet reached an agreement with Napoli about the sum of the goalkeeper's salary.

"They made me a proposal but it is really far from what Julio is currently earning."

There has been speculation that Cesar could move to Napoli on loan and despite QPR boss Harry Redknapp seemingly ruling out the prospect, it appears to remain a possibility.

"Julio would go also on loan to Napoli," said Cardoso.

was there, it was embarrassing - the team looked totally unbalanced from the off, the defence was woeful and when Mikel came off injured it got even worse with nobody in front of them. Up front on several occasions we had opportunities and nobody would shoot - it was a complete farse! On the back of Salah's performance I'm glad there is talk of getting shot...

reat to see Tommy Rosicky getting some love. A wonderful player. Such a pity we lost so long to injury. I was so excited when we signed him, this resurgence only makes the absences seem more of a lost opportunity.
