Chelsea, Spurs, Newcastle go for Deco

Barcelona midfielder Deco has three Premiership giants chasing him for next season.

The Mail on Sunday says Deco has begun a transfer scramble that is likely to involve Chelsea, Tottenham and Newcastle after announcing plans to quit the Nou Camp this summer if the club win no trophies.

The Portugal playmaker has been marginalised by coach Frank Rijkaard this season and the Barcelona board are prepared to sell him as part of a major shake-up of the club in the summer when Ronaldinho is also expected to depart.

Deco acknowledges his days at Barcelona may be coming to an end.

He said: "It's not a question of whether I feel valued or not, it's because I want to win. If I can't help the club win, perhaps I should leave."
