Cesar desperate to leave QPR as quickly as possible…
Fiorentina are close to finalising a deal for QPR’s Brazilian stopper Julio Cesar, after the talented keeper reduced his wage demands, Italian publication Tutto Sport claim.
A deal has been agreed between the two sides for some time, but Julio Cesar’s extravagant wages have been a problem. However, his urgency to leave QPR means he will lower his demands to force through a move by the end of the week. This will help him maintain his spot in goal for El Selecao before next summer’s World Cup in his home country.
The 33-year-old is one of Europe’s top keepers, and despite being relegated with QPR from the Premier League, had an impressive season between the sticks. His form won him back a place as Brazil’s no. 1 stopper, and he performed fantastically in goal for his country during their Confederations Cup win earlier this summer.
Despite being linked with moves to Champions League sides Arsenal and Napoli earlier in the season, strangely; nothing materialised. Napoli chose to bring in Spanish stopper Pepe Reina from Liverpool instead, while Arsenal seem prepared to give Wojciech Szczęsny another chance.
