Julio Cesar’s agent has dismissed reports that the former Inter Milan keeper has left relegated QPR and signed for Arsenal, though the Gunners are still expected to get their man this summer, according to The
Reports in Italy had suggested that the Brazilian had signed a two year contract at the Emirates worth around £4m per season, but Josias Cardoso denied that the deal had been done.
