Barcelona midfielder Deco has admitted he is attracted to the idea of playing in England, and would like to work with Jose Mourinho again.

The Portuguese international was one of Mourinho’s key players at Porto, but according to reports in Spain, his days at Barcelona could be numbered.

“The idea of working with Jose again appeals to me,” Deco told The Sun.

“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.

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

“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.”
