Barcelona star Deco desperate to work with Chelsea boss Mourinho again

Deco has been linked with a summer switch to the Premiership, with both Chelsea and Newcastle interested.

He 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.”

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.”

He added: “The Premier League is definitely on a par with La Liga — and playing there absolutely appeals to me.

“Right now though I think England and Spain are just that little bit better.

“The English league is a possibility and it would definitely be somewhere I’d like to play.

“There’s no doubt that you can compare Manchester United and Chelsea to Barcelona. They are both huge clubs and playing for clubs like that would always be an attractive proposition.”
