'I'm still an Interista at heart' – QPR's Julio Cesar rules out AC Milan move

The Brazilian could leave Loftus Road if Harry Redknapp’s side are relegated from the Premier League, but has refuted talk of a move to Rossoneri due to his loyalty to Inter

QPR goalkeeper Julio Cesar has rubbished speculation linking him with a move to AC Milan at the end of the season.

The 33-year-old joined the west London club last summer from Rossoneri rivals Inter, but Goal.com exclusively revealed that Massimiliano Allegri was hoping to lure the shot-stopper back to San Siro with a two-year contract worth €2.1 million-a-year.

Cesar has recently won his place back in Luiz Felipe Scolari’s Brazil side and was thought to prefer a move back to Italy in light of possible relegation from the Premier League with QPR – but the player himself insists he is happy in London and will not be returning to his old stomping ground.

“Will I return to Milan? No,” he told Gazzetta dello Sport.. “I’m learning a new language in London, the city is beautiful and my family is happy.”

Having won Serie A, the Coppa Italia and the Champions League during seven highly successful seasons with Inter, Cesar says he is still very fond of Nerazzurri even if he departed the club on bad terms last year.

“I was certainly not treated well by Inter, but I’m still an Interista in my heart,” he added.

The former Flamengo goalkeeper has made 23 appearances for the Rs this season, securing five clean sheets.
