Harry Redknapp admits he is baffled that only Sunderland have shown a tentative interest in Julio Cesar and says the goalkeeper's wages may be putting off suitors.
Rangers are amazed they have not found a buyer for the Brazilian international, who they want off the wage bill. But so far, there has been little interest.
The 34-year-old former Inter player is reportedly on £45,000 a week, with bonuses.
Cesar made a rare appearance for the Hoops in last week's FA Cup defeat at Ipswich and although he played well in the 4-0 defeat, Rob Green remains the number one at Loftus Road.
“I suppose it doesn't help,” said Redknapp when asked whether the stopper's wages were preventing other clubs for going for him. “But he's a Brazilian number one.
“Sunderland showed some interest but I don't know where that's gone. We've heard nothing from them for a couple of weeks.
“I think the other lad they've got in from Arsenal [Vito Mannone] has done well for them.
“It's a strange one, though. He [Cesar] is an outstanding goalkeeper and he will play for Brazil in the World Cup, so he needs to play somewhere.
“He wants to play. He's a good professional. He had more to lose last week at Everton than he had to gain, but he was dead keen to play.”
The QPR boss added: “It's been a difficult situation for him. At the start of the season, he came back late from the Confederations Cup and he was going to move on, as far as we knew.
“He was one of the ones I thought would move first - that he was probably the most wanted player out of all of them.
“If he was at a big, big club, he'd probably be one of the first one that you'd take. But we moved everybody else on and he just didn't go.
“I started with Rob in the team because I thought he was going to go in the [summer] window and Rob's never looked back. He's been fantastic.”
