Queens Park Rangers goalkeeper Julio Cesar’s agent revealed to an Italian radio station that the keeper is interested in a move from England to Fiorentina this summer and that he has already put the wheels in motion to begin the transfer process. The agent confirmed that he has sent a “close friend” to speak with Fiorentina officials to let them know that Cesar likes the Italian side and is open to moving there.

Cesar’s agent mentioned in the interview that his player is looking to secure a World Cup spot in next summer’s competition in Brazil. Cesar is Brazilian, giving him the opportunity to feature in a World Cup played in his home country.

“I never made direct contact with Fiorentina, but I did send a close friend to speak to the Viola. For now there is no news,” the agent told Radio Blu, as translated by Goal.com.

“QPR would have no problem letting him go to Fiorentina or to any other club, but if the €3.2 million don’t arrive then it’s difficult to close the deal. The move can be made only if we are offered a four-year contract.

“He has a contract with QPR until 2016, so it has to match that date. The length of the contract could compensate for a difference in wages, but if it expired earlier than 2016 then it would be pointless.

“Julio Cesar likes Fiorentina, so they could be the right team for him to target a World Cup spot.”

The 33 year old has made 74 appearances for his national team since his debut for Brazil in 2004. The keeper will be 38 at the time of the 2018 World Cup in Russia, meaning this may be his last chance to be his country’s number one option in a World Cup tournament.

Fiorentina’s sporting director Daniele Prade has come out to say however that he has not been in contact with QPR over the transfer of Cesar to his club.

“I have never contacted QPR for Julio Cesar. I want to deny the rumors that you may have read in the newspapers,” Prade said, according to Goal.com.
