Barcelona duo may move on


Barcelona could be about to sell its Portuguese midfielder Deco and Cameroonia­n striker Samuel Eto’o to Chelsea for a total of $84 million U.S., the Spanish sports daily Marca said yesterday, without indicating its sources. It said Chelsea’s signing this week of Brazilian coach Luiz Felipe Scolari, currently manager of the Portuguese national team, was the determinin­g factor in Deco’s decision to move on and reject other offers, including one from Inter Milan.
