Former Chelsea midfielder Deco considering retirement
Former Chelsea midfielder Deco is considering the idea of retiring at the end of Brazil's season, as his physical decline continues.
The 35-year old midfielder joined Fluminense in 2010, after spells at Porto, Barcelona and Chelsea, having won most of the main European titles.
He also became part of Portugal's national team, despite the fact he was born in Brazil.
He arrived at Fluminense under high expectations, but only started living up to the hype in 2011, and was a key player in Flu's Brazilian national league title in 2012.
Deco talked to cable TV channel ESPN Brasil about his future and the possibility of retiring this year, he said "I said after Libertadores that I would talk something about what may happen. I'm under contract with Fluminense until December and I intend to see it out, but it will depend on how things happen. I'm not sure but this might be my last year".
The midfielder also mentioned that his style changed over the years, he said: "Nowadays I think more and run less".
