Brazil goalkeeper Julio Cesar is set to leave Queens Park Rangers in the coming weeks according to chairman Tony Fernandes.

Cesar hasn't played in the Championship all season, with Robert Green maintaining his place as QPR look for promotion back to the Premier League.

The Brazilian was one of the highlights from QPR's time in the top division last season. Cesar kept his side in many games but the London side couldn't produce enough wins to keep themselves up.

Cesar has only played one game this season, an FA Cup tie which saw his side go down 4-0 to Everton at Goodison Park.

Fernandez believes Cesar will leave in this transfer window, reports FourFourTwo:

 "I think so. It's a waste for someone with such immense talent not playing and I think he is one of the best goalkeepers in the world, so I'm sure someone will pick him up and let's see how that goes.

"We've gone with Rob (Green) because at the beginning of the season we thought Julio wouldn't be there.

"Rob has come in and done a fantastic job and I think he could be pushing for an England place - he's played really well."

Cesar has been linked with a move back to Italy and Serie A side Cagliari are reportedly interested in the 34-year-old.

It will be no surprise if the Brazilian leaves as most thought he would leave Loftus Road when QPR were relegated last season.

Cesar will be looking ahead at the World Cup in Brazil and will need more game time if he is to be the first choice keeper.
