Brazil goalkeeper ‘in talks’ as he bids to leave QPR

Cesar desperate to leave Rangers ahead of next summer's World Cup

Brazil and QPR goalkeeper Julio Cesar has revealed he is ‘in talks’ with a number of clubs, as he seeks to complete his move away from the Championship side.

Cesar has not played a single match for Rangers since April, having lost his place to former England No.1 Rob Green.

He was wanted by Arsenal during the summer, but the Gunners are unlikely to renew their interest having this week awarded Wojciech Szczesny a new long-term contract.

After last season’s relegation from the Premier League, Rangers manager Harry Redknapp is desperate to remove the former Inter Milan shot-stopper from the wage-bill.

Cesar could choose to leave England and return to his homeland, as he seeks to earn his place in the national side ahead of next summer’s World Cup.

Cesar told UOL: 'I am now in talks with some clubs, but nothing official. Let's see what happens. The transfer window opens in January, so we have until January to talk and continue with my work.'

Cesar thanked Brazil manager Luiz Felipe Scolari for showing continued faith in him, despite his inability to get a game for QPR.

He added: 'What the national team staff have been doing for me is amazing. I have to thank them a lot and now it is my turn to help them.

'I now have to find a team. I know they have placed huge trust in me and I have to play.'
