Chelsea want to build team around Barcelona's Deco

Chelsea have made a contract offer to Barcelona's want-away Deco.

El Mundo Deportivo says Chelsea chief Peter Kenyon has been in contact with Deco's agent, Jorge Mendes, and made it clear they see the Portugal international as the main playmaker for next season's new-look team.

Mendes made Chelsea's interest known to Deco over the weekend, along with a fresh offer from Inter Milan.
