[2008] Deco plays it hard

this post was published exactly one year ago:

Catalan sports weekly paper Gol claims that Barcelona will again try to sell Barcelona midfielder Deco (30) in the summer. Besides his disappointing performances on the pitch, the club doesn't like the way of being and acting of the player, who is also still being linked with former Barcelona sports vice president Sandro Rosell.

Deco has told people of his entourage that he's having a great time in Barcelona and that he only will consider leaving if his new club would offer him a four-year contract and the same salary he's getting at this moment: 5 million euro. If that's not the case, Deco plans to stay until his contract expires in 2010.

The weekly paper claims that Barcelona already wanted to let go Deco, who has a buyout clause of 75 million euro, last summer. The club received many offers, but the Portuguese international only wanted to join his former Porto manager José Mourinho at Chelsea. No agreement could be reached with Chelsea because the English club did not want to pay the transfer price Barcelona was asking nor the 6 million euro year salary that Deco wanted to receive for each of the three years he would be playing in England.

Mayve he can pick up some motivation if a new coach arrives? Cause he proved against Manchester last week, it's all about motivation. He still can do it, but he should want it.
