QPR stopper hints at Premier League stay

QPR Goalkeeper Julio CesarQPR goalkeeper Julio Cesar has dismissed reports that he is set to return to Italy insisting that he is happy in the Premier League.

The Brazilian stopper has been one of the Super Hoops’ only impressive performers this season, turning in a number of top-notch displays in the club’s fight against relegation.

His fine form has led to speculation that he could make a return to Italy, with AC Milan – local rivals of his former side Inter Milan – said to be interested.

But, Cesar says he has no interest in moving to the Rossoneri and is content with life in England:

“Will I return to Milan? No.” He is quoted by Gazzetta dello Sport.

“I’m learning a new language in London, the city is beautiful and my family is happy.”

Should QPR be relegated it’s unlikely that Cesar will stay at Loftus Road, with the club keen to axe a number of high earners to align with the reduced income of Championship football.

Some reports have claimed that a number of Premier League sides, including Manchester United and Arsenal, are interested in the 33-year-old, and could offer him an escape route this summer.

As well as Cesar, Loic Remy, Christopher Samba and Adel Taarabt are all believed to be available for transfers if Harry Redknapp is unable to steer his club clear of the drop.
