Is QPR goalkeeper Júlio Cesar on his way to Benfica?A return to QPR looks unlikely for the former Inter Milan star
According to the Daily Mail, the Portuguese side want the 34-year-old Brazilian as a replacement for current first choice Jan Oblak, who they are losing to Atletico Madrid.
After being frozen out by QPR, Júlio Cesar was loaned out to Toronto FC in the MLS where he made seven appearances before the World Cup. He will now be hoping that a move to Benfica revitalises his career.
When Júlio Cesar was beaten from the penalty spot in the third minute of third-place playoff match against Holland on Saturday, he became the holder of an unwanted record.
It was the 16th conceded by the former Inter Milan star in World Cup matches, handing him the record of conceding the most goals at World Cup finals for Brazil. It was his 12th World Cup game over two tournaments in 2010 and 2014.
The previous record-holder was Taffarel, who conceded 15 goals in 18 games across three World Cups. Taffarel played in 1990, 1994 and 1998, taking home a winner's medal in 1994.
