Brazil boss Luiz Felipe Scolari has told Julio Cesar to find a new club after links with Napoli, Roma and Fiorentina produced nothing.
The former Inter player, 33, is looking for a transfer after current side QPR were relegated from the Premiership last season.
“It is a situation which is worrying me and Julio is aware of that,” Scolari stated. “It doesn’t matter whether he plays for a club in the third, fifth or tenth Division – that he plays is the important thing.”
While Napoli and Roma have gone elsewhere for goalkeepers, the Viola are still looking for a new No 1.
However, the Tuscan giants have this week insisted that the ex-Chievo Verona man is no longer an option for them.
Julio Cesar’s refusal to lower his wage demands are thought to be the reason why Vincenzo Montella’s side have pulled out of the race to sign him.
