Julio Cesar: Ruling nothing out as he plans for Loftus Road exit

The 33-year-old has been told that he is free to find a new club this summer after suffering relegation out of the Premier League in his debut season at Loftus Road.

A number of clubs have been heavily linked with the vastly-experienced shot-stopper, with an enviable CV which includes a UEFA Champions League triumph with Inter Milan making him an attractive proposition.

A return to Italy has been widely touted, with Roma reported to be leading the chase, but Cesar is ruling nothing out as he continues his quest for international glory on home soil.

He said: "If I have a good performance in this competition, many things might change for me and my future.

"By having a good competition and being champions, more clubs might be interested in me.

"I have been fully focused on the Confederations Cup since it started and will let my future be decided by the people that represent me.

"I will not be closing the door on Italian football, as they embraced me eight years ago and allowed me to reach the peak of my career.

"It would be good to return to Italian football, knowing the league and the language. Rome is a beautiful city and I won't rule that out as a possibility."

However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
