Deco hints at Chelsea move

10 June 2008 08:29
Barcelona midfielder Deco has revealed a summer switch to Chelsea could be on the cards. Deco, 30, has reportedly been told that he can leave Spain after four seasons at the Camp Nou and the Portugal international has revealed that his two likely destinations are Stamford Bridge and Italian side Internazionale. "At the moment I have just two possibilities - Chelsea and Inter," he said. "I haven't yet sealed a deal with either of them. I haven't yet decided on my future as I must meet with my agent and see what's best. "But I won't go to a club that I don't like or won't let me win trophies as this is my goal." However, Chelsea's hopes of landing the former FC Porto star could be hampered by their former boss Jose Mourinho. The Portuguese coach is now in charge of Inter and reports claim Deco will opt to join up with his former mentor in Italy. "Undoubtedly my relationship with him (Mourinho) is excellent and that could be a key point, but I have to consider other factors," he continued. "Inter are a good squad that could meet any player's ambitions. So do Chelsea and I have friends there too."
