Brazil manager Luiz Felipe Scolari believes Julio Cesar will remain on QPR's books this season after speaking to Rangers manager Harry Redknapp about the future of the Selecao's number one.

The 33-year-old was widely expected to lead a mass exodus of high earners to leave the West London side after their relegation from the Premier League last season, but so far a move for the experienced keeper has failed to be concluded.

There was reported interest from the likes of Napoli and Villareal, but Cesar's wages have proved to be the stumbling block.

Cesar has also been reported as being keen on staying in London which made Arsenal an attractive proposition for the Brazilian, but again a move has failed to materialise.

After Arsenal's opening day disaster at home to Aston Villa, Gunners fans called for Arsene Wenger to sign up the Brazilian keeper on social networking site Twitter, but that seems all the more unlikely now.

Scolari confirmed the news about Cesar when speaking at a press conference to announce his squad to face Australia and Portugal.

He said: "Julio has resolved his matters with the club. Hypothetically, we know where he will play this season. We’ve talked to him, reaffirmed our trust in him during this week after we talked to his club.

"We have called him up again because by the end of the transfer window, his situation will be resolved, with him staying on with QPR. After that it will be up to his manager to play him or not."
