Inter Milan coach Jose Mourinho is eager to sign Portuguese duo Ricardo Carvalho and Deco from Chelsea, according to the Italian club’s president.
“The coach has asked for Deco and Carvalho and we have started talks,” Massimo Moratti told La Gazzetta dello Sport newspaper.
“We want to sign the two of them and I’m delighted to have seen that the two players want to come here.
“We still haven’t got the nod from Chelsea but I think we’ll manage to find that quickly.”
Central defender Carvalho and Brazilian-born midfielder Deco, both 31, have played under Mourinho at Porto, winning the 2004 Champions League. Carvalho also played for the Portuguese coach when he was in charge at Chelsea.
Moratti added that Inter had as yet received no offers for star striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic, a possible off-season signing target for Barcelona.
