Sao Paulo have ruled out making a move for Queens Park Rangers goalkeeper Julio Cesar.
The Brazilian goalkeeper admitted he could be ready to leave the Championship side in January.
“We will do our planning as we identify our needs,” vice-president Joao Paulo de Jesus Lopes told the Brazilian press.
“But for many reasons it’s silliness to say we will sign Julio Cesar. I ask myself if it’s a political attempt to unsettle [current goalkeeper] Rogerio Ceni or our board as we have a big affection for Rogerio.”
He added: “There is no chance we bring in Julio Cesar, just like there is no chance we bring other problems. When I say problems, I am referring to Fred and Vagner Love, who are not our targets.”
