Cesar announces Inter exit
Brazilian goalkeeper Julio Cesar has confirmed he is on the verge of ending his seven-year association with Italian giants Inter Milan.
The 32-year-old made 33 Serie A appearances for the Nerazzurri last season as they still managed to qualify for Europe via their sixth-placed finish despite a topsy-turvy campaign.
Inter coach Andrea Stramaccioni is in the process of rebuilding his squad as he looks to challenge for domestic and European honours in 2012/13, and has already sanctioned the departures of Lucio, Sulley Muntari, Diego Forlan and Goran Pandev.
And Cesar is set to follow the quartet through exit door following the arrival of Slovenia international gloveman Samir Handanovic from Udinese.
"They have been seven beautiful and successful years but, in a few days, my adventure in the Inter shirt will end," the Brazil international posted on his official Facebook account.
Cesar will depart the San Siro just one appearance shy of the 300-mark for the Milan outfit, where he won 14 trophies including five Scudettos and the UEFA Champions League in 2010.
