QPR goalkeeper Julio Cesar admits he spoke to Arsenal as he prepared to leave Inter Milan in the summer.

He has graced the top of the game and was expected to join another title-chasing club after deciding to leave Italy.

Cesar told the Sunday People: "I accepted this proposal because I wanted to live in London.

"I have an amazing way of life here and I'm giving my family a great opportunity to grow up culturally.

"I talked with Arsenal in the last transfer window, and they were really happy about me playing for them, but at the last minute I moved to QPR.

"QPR has a project, and I dream about that project coming true. But I came here because I was thinking about my future once I quit football, that's true."
