Julio Cesar: Poised to leave QPR when the summer transfer window opens

Julio Cesar: Poised to leave QPR when the summer transfer window opens

The Brazilian goalkeeper only moved to Loftus Road in August 2012 - one of a number of high-profile additions made by the capital club as they attempted to cement their Premier League standing.

Cesar has been among QPR's more consistent performers in 2012/13, but his efforts have failed to prevent the club from slipping out of the top flight.

With a home World Cup on the horizon, and ambitions to continue playing at the very highest level, the 33-year-old concedes that he will be transferred when the window re-opens.

He is, however, keeping his cards close to his chest when it comes to possible destinations - with a return to his homeland having already been ruled out.

Cesar told Sportv: "It is confidential. My future today is a question mark.

"I have three more years on my contract, but the manager has already made it clear that it will be hard for me to stay at the club. I am happy he thinks that way, it is a sign that my work is being recognised.

"I dedicated as much as I could to QPR."

Cesar has also revealed that he will start QPR's final fixture of a forgettable season at Liverpool on Sunday.

He added: "He (Harry Redknapp) had told me that I wouldn't start any more games as I won't be staying at the club. He said he would select other goalkeepers. I accepted his decision, there is no problem.

"Now he has asked me to play the last game, and that makes me happy. I will try to play well and do my best."

terling needs to be told though that upon entering the Arsenal squad he will re-enact the final scene from Highlander where he will be thrown around a warehouse by cartoon dragons and then be a mere mortal that will only ever spend three to four weeks a season playing football and the rest on the physio's bed. There can be only one.....player available at The Emirates.

he game changed in our favour when Carrick came on. We were able to play further up the pitch due to having a player who can give and go with the ball and keep possession. Yet barkley made some runs and Townsend scored a good goal but carrick's inclusion and chiellini's withdrawal made the biggest difference to the flow of the game

o, you've not silenced anyone Andros, i'm afraid. We know you can score a great goal, and it's really handy to have your direct running and willingness to shoot on the bench. But until you can do the other things expected of a winger (beat the man, put a decent cross in, stay wide etc) then you can't expect more than a regular cameo. Wonderful goal though, what a hit! No wonder Buffon wanted the shirt.
