Real Madrid ponder shock move for QPR keeper Julio Cesar

Real Madrid are lining up a bid for QPR goalkeeper Julio Cesar. The Daily Mail says Julio Cesar has emerged as a shock target for Real Madrid.

The Brazilian goalkeeper, 33, has established himself as QPR's No 1 ahead of Rob Green since joining last summer.

But manager Harry Redknapp could face a fight to keep the shot-stopper, with Jose Mourinho understood to be considering plotting a move.

The Madrid boss is in the market for a keeper after Iker Casillas suffered a broken hand that could rule him out for up to two months - a period that includes the Champions League second-round double-header against Manchester United.

Real are thought to prefer to take Cesar on loan until the end of the season, but the keeper would insist on a permanent switch.

Mourinho knows Cesar well, having worked with him at Inter Milan.
