"He was a huge influence on my career and he did so much for me. I've worked with him before and it would be good to work with him again."
Sources in Spain say a swap deal for Frank Lampard could see Deco heading to Stamford Bridge.
Deco said: "There has been a lot of speculation about my future but at the moment that is all it is.
"Right now I'm a Barcelona player and I am just looking forward to the new season and trying to win the league.
"But football can change very quickly. If Barcelona want to sell me then all they have to do is say and I will go.
"It wouldn't upset me if I had to go because I know there are other big clubs in the world I could play for.
"Every player wants to play for Barcelona and I've loved being here but if the manager decides I'm not part of his plans, then I will leave."
