Toronto FC has been making a huge revolution this offseason, but the Reds aren’t done dealing yet as evidenced by their latest moves before the new MLS season kicks off.
Not content after adding the likes of Michael Bradley and Jermain Defoe, two international players with pedigree and experience on their shoulders, the Canadian side has now improved their defense and specifically the goalkeeper position, securing a loan deal for former Inter Milan shot-stopper Julio Cesar.
The Brazilian keeper is currently on the books of Queens Park Rangers, an English side that is currently participating in the Football Championship, England’s second-tier league. He has failed to make an appearance with the side this season. With a spot in the 23-man roster for the upcoming 2014 World Cup already secured, Cesar needed a team to rediscover his form, and there’s no doubt that he will instantly become one of the most important players for Toronto FC.
While he might take awhile to get into his playing shape, there’s no doubt Cesar will be a great addition for Toronto. He has plenty of experience under his belt, evidenced by the 77 caps he has already won with La Selecao, and has played against some of the best players in the world in his tenure with Inter, where he won the UEFA Champions League under Jose Mourinho’s management.
He has plenty left in the tank and is a great addition for a Toronto team that will be ready to make a run at the MLS Cup title.
