Júlio César says ‘small details’ were all that prevented him moving to Brazil or Europe in January
Júlio César has briefly discussed why he didn’t move back to Brazil or to a European club in the latest January transfer window.
However, the Brazilian goalkeeper has failed to give a specific reason as to why he is moving to Toronto FC over the more illustrious clubs that were linked with his signing.
César spoke to Globo Esporte and his comments were reported by Sky Sports.
The 34-year-old said: “We couldn’t reach a contract agreement that was good for everyone, that’s the truth.
“I did talk with some clubs in Brazil and Europe but the truth is that no agreement could be reach due to disagreements over small details.”
The experienced keeper was linked with various clubs but his high wages were said to be the sticking point when it came to negotiations.
At Queens Park Rangers César is reportedly on £90,000 a week, a huge figure for clubs in Brazil to outlay and for several European teams too.
It isn’t yet known if Toronto are paying all of his wages but however much they do pay will hopefully be worth it should César rediscover the form which made him one of the best goalkeepers in the world only a few years ago.
