Tottenham Hotspur Transfer News: Spurs To Get Goalkeeper Julio Cesar

Tottenham manager Andre Villas-Boas's search for a goalkeeper has bought him to looking at Inter Milan's 32-year-old keeper Julio Cesar, after he was put off by the £15 million demand for Lyon's Hugo Lloris.

Inter Milan are trying to get the high earning Brazilian international off their wage bill as he pockets £85,000 a week. An attempt has already been made to off load the keeper last month, they offered him to Palmeiras in Brazil but the club also couldn't afford his wages.

The fact that Spurs can land the keeper on a free will convince the club to fork out on his wages as they search for a new main man between the sticks.

Cesar comes with bags of experience internationally and at club level. Despite his age, he is still fairly young for a goalkeeper. He's played 64 games for Brazil in a career that started back in 1997 with Brazilian club Flamengo. Since then he has made 462 senior club appearances and has been up there with the top 5 keepers in Europe.

Villas-Boas is said to have arrived at Tottenham being given a wealth of money to purchase some vital signings this summer to help improve the squad. With the club targetting a striker and another midfielder however, he will have to spend the money wisely.

Tottenham officials will now weigh up there options whether to pursue this possible free transfer or if they want to stretch funds to land highly rated 25-year-old France number one keepr Hugo Lloris from Lyon.
