Júlio Cesar is on the verge of swapping Internazionale for Queens Park Rangers in what will be one of the biggest transfer stories of the summer.

The 32-year-old has won five Serie A titles, three Coppa Italias and the Champions League during a glittering eight-year spell at the San Siro, and QPR fans backed the club’s move for the Brazil goalkeeper on Twitter.

Here are some of the Tweets that caught our eye.

Mikey Cotton (‏@MikeyCotton) is excited by the potential deal: “Júlio Cesar to QPR would be an outstanding signing for them.”

Alex ‏(@VillaAlex91) believes QPR are ‘doing a Portsmouth’: “Júlio Cesar to QPR… How on earth..? Their wage bill must be huge… Sigh… Doing a Pompey???”

While Andy Parsons ‏(@andypars) thinks QPR are signing players who are past their best: “Júlio Cesar to QPR? I think every fallen big-time Charlie in the world has been linked to QPR. What’s another word for ‘mercenary’ anyone?”

Robbie Pickering (@R_Pickering99) believes Cesar’s imminent arrival spells the end for Rob Green: “Júlio Cesar to #QPR! Keep that seat warm on the bench Rob Green – you have never been good enough for the #EPL anyway! #WOW”

Emma Minaj (@Smileyemms) can’t believe the transfer rumour: “Júlio Cesar to QPR, if you told me that four years ago I would have sent you to the nut house.”

Andrew Beech (‏@beechyboy90) is shocked Cesar has not been snapped up by another club: “Júlio Cesar to QPR massive signing, suprised he hasn’t had interest from anyone else. No doubt stupid money is being thrown about!”

Gooniverse (‏@Gooniverse) calls Cesar’s possible move to west London as the biggest transfer story of the summer – even bigger than Robin van Persie: “Júlio Cesar to QPR?! Wow, probably the most insane transfer this window, wages, pedigree and the fact they’ve already bought Rob Green!”

Dan Dorrington ‏(@DannyDizzoo) can’t understand why Mark Hughes originally signed Green: “Júlio Cesar to QPR? Great signing, I don’t know why they signed Rob Green in the first place, he’s useless!”

Mr Bruce Wain (‏@MattGibsonWain) believes it spells the end for Green: “Júlio Cesar to QPR? WOW and for like nothing. thats a great transfer deal from QPR. Rob Green only played two games and is replaced. Ha!”

Nabeel Qureshi (‏@nabsaqureshi) reckons the Brazilian goalkeeper is on a downward spiral: “Júlio Cesar to QPR isn’t really a big deal. Well past his best from 2010!”

Nathan (@OutSideTheArea) agrees: “Júlio Cesar to QPR isn’t that surprising. If anyone saw Inter during the last two years, they would realise he is a shadow of himself now.”

Finally, Petros Hajioannou ‏(@Pets930) is a jealous Crystal Palace fan: “Júlio Cesar to QPR? As much as I hate QPR, like really hate QPR! They have been making some very good signings!”
