Real Madrid goalkeeper Cesar claims he would have no problem moving to Barcelona.Real Madrid goalkeeper Cesar claims he would have no problem moving to the club's arch rivals Barcelona.
The custodian will leave Real at the end of the season when his contract expires, having not being offered a new deal.
He was linked with a switch to Liverpool during the transfer window, but a move ultimately failed to materialise.
The 33-year-old insists he will consider every offer that he receives and, with Barca reportedly in the market for goalkeeping cover, that could see him considering a move to Camp Nou.
"I'm not closing any door whether it be in Spain or abroad," he stated.
"I would not have a problem playing for Barcelona, although it's best not to talk about this now because it's a sensitive matter.
"Here (at Real) everyone deserves respect."
Given his contractual situation, Cesar is entitled to open talks with interested suitors, but says he will not be speaking to clubs for the time being out of respect to Real.
"It's premature to talk about offers," he continued.
"I have respect for the club who are paying me and where I have spent four years.
"Although Fifa allow you to negotiate contracts, it is not the time to talk about that."
