Cesar Signs

Tonight the club have announced the ninth signing of the summer with Julio Cesar becoming the second goalkeeper to walk through the door at Loftus Road.

Cesar, 32, joins the club from Inter Milan on a four year deal.


Cesar comes to the club with an incredible pedigree. During Cesar's time at Inter Milan he has won five Serie A titles, a Champions League as well as winning 64 caps for Brazil.

This clearly is a massive signing for the club and could prove to be key signing in the clubs bid to move forward with great strides.

Cesar told the Official QPR Website -

"I'm so happy and excited to be here.
"The ambition of this club was presented to me by the chairman and the coach and I couldn't have been more impressed.
"The desire to achieve things at this club is clear for everyone to see and I wanted to be part of that. I have come here to compete for the shirt and give my all."
"The English Premier League is the best division in the world.
"Everyone wants to play here and I am no different. Now I just want to give my all to the club and show the fans what I am capable of.
"This is a really exciting move for me and I can't wait to get going."

Mark Hughes added -
"It's fantastic that we've been able to attract a keeper of such outstanding ability to the club," said Hughes.
"When the opportunity to sign a player of his quality presents itself, you have to act quickly and we've managed to get the deal done.
"It was always my intention to bring two goalkeepers to the club this summer and now we've got fantastic competition in that department."
He added: "He's an outstanding individual, as well as being an outstanding player.
"Not only will we benefit from his ability, but we'll also benefit from his experience and winning mentality."

Cesar is likely to receive International Clearance after the Manchester City game and will be in line to challenge for the starting slot for the Chelsea game.

Cesar will wear the number 33 shirt.
