Manchester United and Arsenal send scouts to watch QPR keeper Julio César
Manchester United and Arsenal have both sent scouts to watch QPR‘s Julio César as they look to solve their goalkeeper woes.
César, 33, has been in outstanding form for QPR since joining from Inter in the summer, so much so that he has earned a recall to the Brazilian national team coach Luiz Felipe Scolari for the Seleção’s friendly against England at Wembley next month.
Manchester United have constantly rotated their keepers this season, with manager Sir Alex Ferguson not convinced by either Anders Lindegaard or David De Gea, and are now looking to the experienced Brazilian to solve their problems.
Arsenal have been looking for an experienced keeper for a while to provide competition for the Polish number one Wojciech Szczesny, and had previously looked at Swansea’s Michel Vorm.
However, Arsene Wenger appears to be losing faith in Szczesny, whose development seems to have stalled, and could be tempted to go back in for César after showing interest in him during the summer.
César spent seven year with Inter, winning five Serie A titles and the Champions League, but shocked the football world when he moved to Loftus Road at the beginning of the season, not just for choosing QPR but also because Rangers had signed Robert Green just weeks earlier.
Now QPR are hoping to sell one of their two keepers to ease their wage bill, despite the fact that César’s superb performances in recent weeks.
