It is now official that former Inter goalkeeper Julio Cesar has signed a four-year contract with QPR.
“I’m so happy and excited to be here,” he told qpr.co.uk.
“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.
“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.”
The 32-year-old goalkeeper terminated his deal by mutual consent with the Nerazzurri this afternoon and has chosen the Number 33 jersey.
“It’s fantastic that we’ve been able to attract a keeper of such outstanding ability to the club,” said manager Mark 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’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.”
