RIO DE JANEIRO -- Former Brazil goalkeeper Julio Cesar says he will return to boyhood club Flamengo and end his career there in three months.

The 2010 Champions League winner with Inter Milan says "I hope I can enjoy those three months with the fans so we can close this chapter with a happy ending."

The 38-year-old Julio Cesar was a starter for Brazil at the last two World Cups. He played in the 7-1 loss to Germany in the 2014 semifinals.

Julio Cesar, who also had spells at Queens Park Rangers and Toronto FC, says he doesn't expect to play much for the club he left 13 years ago for Inter.
