Inter Milan offer £10m for Chelsea duo Ricardo Carvalho and Deco

25 June 2009 11:13
The Daily Express claims sporting director Marco Branca has met with Chelsea executives, who are prepared to offload the Portuguese pair. The clubs are yet to agree on the fee with Chelsea valuing the two players at £13 million. Jose Mourinho, the coach under whom both Carvalho and Deco won the Champions League at Porto, has identified the experienced pair as two of his key summer transfer targets. Chelsea are also interested in Inter centre-back Nicolas Burdisso but the 28-year-old insists there has been no contact with the Stamford Bridge outfit. "I have spoken to Mourinho, who told me that he is happy with me and that I have a lot to give to Inter," Burdisso told "My relationship with Mourinho is excellent and I hope that it remains like that in the future. "I have learnt a lot with him. "Last season was a positive year for me and my wish is to remain at Inter. "I have no intention to change teams." The Argentina defender made 21 league appearances for Inter last season.
