Redknapp says Julio Cesar won't return to QPR

The Rs boss expects his Brazilian goalkeeper to leave this summer, with Arsenal, AC Milan and Roma all reported to be in the mix for his signature.
QPR manager Harry Redknapp expects that goalkeeper Julio Cesar will lead the exodus out of Loftus Road this summer, with Serie A or La Liga a likely destination.

The Rs boss has confirmed that the Brazil international will be on his way out as the relegated side looks to shed some of its colossal wage bill before attempting to climb out of the League Championship next season.

"I don't see Julio being here next year — he's not a player for the Championship. He's a player for a top Italian or Spanish or Premier League team," Redknapp told the London Evening Standard. "Julio's got the World Cup coming up and he's the top Brazilian keeper. Rob [Green's] come in and done great for me. He's the one we're looking to play next season."

Arsenal, AC Milan and Roma are among the clubs to have been linked with relieving QPR of Cesar's 90,000 pound-per-week wages.
