Manchester United are paying close attention to QPR goalkeeper Julio Cesar.Globo Esporte says United are keen on Cesar, and QPR want to cut their wage bill which could pave the way for a move.

They also note that Cesar was a target for Real Madrid before they signed Sevilla's Diego Lopez as cover for the injured Iker Casillas.

The Red Devils are growing tired of David de Gea's error-strewn performances and have been drawing up a list of potential targets.

Barcelona's Victor Valdes and Liverpool's Pepe Reina have been sounded for moves to Old Trafford, but Cesar has now caught the eye of United boss Sir Alex Ferguson.
