Cesar was widely expected to leave QPR over the summer following the club's relegation from the Premier League, and he was linked with the likes of Arsenal, Benfica and Fiorentina.
He has not been involved in QPR's match-day squads this season after Robert Green was restored as first choice amid the ongoing speculation about Cesar's future.
However, the 34-year-old has no qualms about still being part of Harry Redknapp's squad and does not feel playing in the Championship will affect his prospects of being part of Brazil's plans for next year's World Cup.
"I didn't think in any moment about leaving QPR," Cesar, who made 26 appearances last season, was quoted by Globo Esporte at a press conference.
"Of course, if anything came up, as it happened, it was something to sit down and talk about with the club's chairman.
"But, in my head, things have gone back to normal.
"I don't think I'll have to do anything different due to the fact I am in the Championship. It's a strong competition in England with competitive teams.
"We play 46 games, eight more games than in the Premier League."
