Deco Signed, End of Lampard?

Posted on: July 3, 2008

Just yesterday Chelsea FC made their successful move of portuguese midfielder Deco, but just how good was this deal? Is 30 year old Deco really worth 9 million? Will Deco cope with the change which he will face in the English system?

Deco is a fantastic player, without doubt, he is a good signing for any club. But when you have a player like Lampard who has served the club tremendously well, is it right to bring another big name into the scene? We all know that there is a rumor going around about Lampard leaving for Inter Milan, but recently Mourinho has just denied that Lampard will be joining him this summer. Rather he has said

“For the next season it will be easier for him to join me at Inter. I’m 100% sure in 2009/2010 he will be playing here.”

So what’s with all the fuss? Was this a ploy made by Mourinho to worry Chelsea and possibly rush them into a signing? If it was, then it certainly seemed like it worked.
