Julio Cesar could be offered the chance to stay in Italy by Milan if their local rivals Inter decide to ditch him this summer, according to Sportsmediaset.
The Brazilian goalkeeper looks likely to have his contract cancelled by Inter, who want to replace their oldest, highest paid players.
He is thought to have held a meeting yesterday with sporting director Marco Branca and Coach Andrea Stramaccioni.
If Julio Cesar becomes a free agent, Milan could offer him a deal because it is thought that the player doesn’t want to leave the city. Any possible deal would be similar to Lucio joining Juventus when Inter terminated his agreement last week.
The Nerazzurri are keen to release Julio Cesar to pave the way for Udinese ‘keeper Samir Handanovic to replace him. The Slovenian has already agreed a contract, but the transfer cannot happen until Inter agree a fee with Udinese.
He is valued at €14m by Udinese, but Inter hope to agree a part-exchange deal including youngster Marco Faraoni.
