Julio Cesar: Keen to play in Europe again with Benfica

Brazil goalkeeper Cesar linked up with Toronto FC on loan from Queens Park Rangers in February to put an end to a frustrating few months.

He had been expected to leave after QPR's relegation from the Premier League but nothing materialised and he had play a back-up role at Loftus Road until a deal was finally struck last month for him to head to Major League Soccer and get some regular football with Toronto ahead of the World Cup.

Cesar remains interested in playing in Europe and has declared that he would be keen to make the move to Benfica.

"Benfica are a great club and it would be wonderful to play for a team with so much history," he is quoted as telling Antena 1. "It's a shame there was no agreement.

"Let's see if next season we can talk again and reach an agreement.

"We couldn't last time because of the values, we couldn't find a common denominator."

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.

Arsenal interest in Sterling

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.
