Deco's agent has denied that the Barcelona playmaker is set to follow Portugal coach Luiz Felipe Scolari to Chelsea.
Scolari will leave his post with Portugal after Euro 2008 to take over at Stamford Bridge from 1st July.
And there had been speculation that Deco could be set to follow in the footsteps of the Brazilian after their productive working relationship at international level.
Deco is out of favour at Barcelona but, according to his agent Acaz Fellegger, that does not mean he is poised to move to West London.
"Deco is still under contract with Barcelona, even though everyone knows that he will leave the club," Fellegger said.
"Deco was also linked with Inter Milan, and now with Chelsea, but it is all speculation. There is nothing in it."
Brazil-born Deco, 30, said earlier this week he would like to work with Scolari at club level.
"He is a coach with whom I have a great trust and a relationship that is impossible to better," he said.
