Chelsea coaches fear Pirlo could flop like Deco

There are some inside Chelsea concerned over their pursuit of AC Milan midfield schemer Andrea Pirlo.

New Blues manager Carlo Ancelotti wants to bring the Italy international to Stamford Bridge and talks have reopened about a fee.

However, the Telegraph says some at the club may fear, given his age and the fact that he has played all his football outside of England, he may turn out to be the equivalent of Luiz Felipe Scolari signing Deco.

Pirlo is, however, in far better shape than Deco and if he did leave Milan it would cause an outcry among the supporters.
