Harry Redknapp admits QPR are struggling to offload Julio Cesar.

The Brazilian World Cup keeper was restricted to just a solitary appearance for Rangers last season after Rob Green was given the nod between the sticks.

Cesar, signed on a money-spinning deal from Inter Milan in 2012, has been linked with a £5million move to Portuguese giants Benfica.

However, getwestlondon understands potential suitors are unwilling to meet the 34-year-old's wage demands.

Boss Harry Redknapp said: "I think he has a two year contract, so he will be back here. I think it would suit everybody if he could move but I think he has two years."

QPR kick-off their pre-season campaign with a friendly against Rot-Weiß Erfurt on Tuesday evening.
