Hughes: Julio Cesar move great sign of growing QPR profile
QPR were working frantically on Friday to try to get the deal across the line and Hughes admitted Cesar would be a star attraction.
The Rangers manager added: "It's great that we are the kind of club now that can attract people like that.
"A year ago we wouldn't have been sitting in a room negotiating with players of this quality, but that's a measure of the ambition."
Cesar is available on a free transfer, but will command £3million per year in wages.
