Barcelona ace Deco keen on Chelsea move

Deco told The Sun: "The idea of working with Jose again appeals to me.

"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.

The 29-year-old worked with Jose Mourinho at Porto and won both Champions League and the UEFA Cup during his dazzling spell there.

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."
