Once again Tottenham and Newcastle seem inextricably linked to the same transfer target, and this one seems like a player well worth fighting over!
Newcastle United are ready to launch a £15 million bid for Barcelona ace Deco and have United rep’s met with the players agent in recent weeks (The Sun) but Tottenham are thought to be once again monitoring the situation as the Portuguese midfielder is high up on Damien Comolli’s wish-list.
Deco is world class, even though the former Porto man is now 30 years old he still has sublime touches and a whopping shot on him. I think the 15m fee connected with the player might be a little pricey but well worth investigating nonetheless. Deco has made noises in the recent past about wanting to try his hand in the Premier League and for a while it was seen as Chelsea (whilst under the guidance of Deco’s former mentor Jose Mourinho) who would make the move, but now it seems Deco may have a choice between Newcastle and London.
