Agent: Napoli refused to meet contract terms of QPR's Julio Cesar

The agent of QPR goalkeeper Julio Cesar says Napoli refused to meet his personal demands.

The Brazilian's move to Napoli is now off as the Serie A club turn to Liverpool keeper Pepe Reina.

"In Italy recently I have only spoken to Napoli," agent Josias Cardoso told Calciomercato.it.

"President Aurelio De Laurentiis wanted him, but didn't want to pay Julio's current wages. He is one of the best goalkeepers in the world and after a great Confederations Cup performance he showed his desire to come back to Italy by demanding nothing more.

"It would've been normal for someone in his position to ask for a pay rise, but he didn't. Is there still hope of seeing him in Italy? If I don't have official contact with a club, then I cannot have hope."
