Chelsea midfielder Deco has declared he plans to leave Stamford Bridge.

The Brazilian-born midfielder joined Chelsea from Barcelona last summer and after a bright start to life with the Blues he has been reduced to the periphery at the club following the sacking of coach Luiz Felipe Scolari.

Deco has now made no bones about his wish to quit Chelsea after becoming disillusioned with life at Stamford Bridge.

"I have a contract with Chelsea, but there are offers from other clubs," Deco told Maisfutebol. "I want to feel fine, and that is not happening at Chelsea.

"I want to find a club that can bring the joy of playing football back for me."

Guarantee

Deco has been linked with a summer switch to Inter Milan, and the Portugal international has indicated he would welcome a reunion with Jose Mourinho, with whom he enjoyed success at Porto.

The former Barcelona ace noted: "Of course I would like to work again under Mourinho, he is a guarantee of success. He is a great coach, perhaps the best one of my career.

"I have a contract, I know the two clubs have been in talks. Anyway, I have to respect and wait.

"I do not want to stay, I have said that. I have not liked my experience at Chelsea."
