Chelsea close in on Barca star: Is he worth it?

Posted by

Chelsea supporters might be down and out after watching their Champions League chances “slip” away, but fear not! Like every summer, Roman is ready to wipe away your tears with a certain Barcelona star.

The Telegraph is reporting that Barca midfielder, Deco, is ready to get the heck out of the Nou Camp and move to England or Italy after learning that FC Barcelona president Joan Laporta is ready to go on without him.

“I do not want to stay at a club which shows it doesn’t count on me. I’ll go to England or Italy that’s for sure,” Deco said. (Telegraph)

After watching Jose Mourinho fail to bring the Brazilian in last season, there is talk that Avram Grant and Roman Abramovich want to make sure the same thing doesn’t happen twice. But if there is one roadblock in this dream move, it might be the rumors coming out of Spain that Laporta would like to play everyone’s favourite game: Swap-a-midfielder.

“Still eager to sign Lampard from Chelsea and according to reports in Spain a part-exchange deal could be a possibility” (Telegraph)

The big question is: Would you part with Lampard to get Deco?
