Internazionale manager Jose Mourinho has revealed that he would be interested in bringing Chelsea midfielder Souza Deco to the San Siro.
The Portugal international admitted earlier in the week that he was hoping to leave Stamford Bridge this summer after enduring a poor season in England.
Mourinho has now added fuel to the speculation by speaking of his desire to be reunited with Deco, who he worked with at FC Porto.
The former Chelsea boss told Lusa: "I would be very satisfied to work with Deco again. I remember the good moments we had together, the good work we did and the victories we obtained.
"I helped Deco grow, but it was with players like him that I became the coach I am now.
"If it is possible for him to come to Inter and for us to work together again it would be something wonderful for both of us."
Meanwhile, Blues defender Ricardo Carvalho would also be interested in moving to Inter, saying: "I would love to be coached under Mourinho again.
"The majority of trophies I have won were with Mourinho. At Chelsea there is a new cycle happening so we will see what happens."
