Deco moving to Italy?

Chelsea midfielder Deco admits to Inter desire

Chelsea midfielder Deco has revealed that he is in talks with Inter Milan regarding a move to Italy and a potential reunion with manager Jose Mourinho.

The Portuguese playmaker moved to Stamford Bridge last summer after falling out of favour at Barcelona and, after a good start, now admits his recent lack of action has left him frustrated; adding that he feels a switch to Serie A would allow him the opportunity to reignite his career.

"I can confirm I'm talking with Inter," said Deco in The Sun. "I didn't get to play much this year at Chelsea and a move to Italy would be a very good solution.

"To be coached by Mourinho again would be very interesting. But I don't want to go into details, because it's not me who's dealing with the matter."

Mourinho recently admitted that he could be in the market for a Portuguese player this summer, saying: "If I sign any Portuguese, it may be a Portuguese who isn't in Portugal. But I won't name names."

alright, so its just the scum, but obviously it wouldnt be a shock given how things have gone here. I dont really know how Deco would fare in Italy, but if he can act as the offensive fulcrum in midfield at Inter (here we obviously have three better all around midfielders) then that might be just the role he wants/needs

The quote from Jose in bold is interesting as well. Is he going to try and get some of his old Porto warhorses to make Inter a bigger force in Europe? If thats the case, I think Carvalho would be name #1 on his list, if just to avoid ever playing Nelson Rivas again

they need someone like deco desperately, but like it was for us, the risk is whether he can stay fit and in form for a sustained period of time. good luck to them- deco won't be a first choice player here next season.

I also doubt that should Deco go to Inter, that he'd be the first choice for them also. I suppose it's all dependant on what Inter do in the off season, but I think Inter would be a good move for Deco, and us. But due to his age I think it's safe to say he wouldn't be first team material at most top flight clubs
