Mourinho targets summer playmaker
Mourinho tried and failed to sign Chelsea's Frank Lampard last summer, with the England midfielder eventually agreeing a new contract with the Blues.
However, the ex-Porto manager could swoop for another Stamford Bridge playmaker at the end of the season, with Deco - who played under Mourinho at Porto - having struggling to make an impression during his first season with the west Londoners.
The 31-year-old was linked with a move to Inter Milan last summer, but opted to join Chelsea from Barcelona and team up with ex-Portugal national coach Luiz Felipe Scolari.
