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."

resumably, you wanted to keep the version of Downing that was never seen at Anfield. The one that another manager has managed to re-create. The one you passed over.
