Deco started his professional career with Brazilian giants Corinthians and the 32-year-old says he wants to win silverware in his homeland.

The midfielder left South American shores in 1997 to ply his trade at Portuguese side Benfica, before enjoying success at Porto under the stewardship of Jose Mourinho.

The playmaker went on to Barcelona before joining Chelsea in 2008, however he has failed to make a strong impact in the English game.

Deco was born in Sao Paulo but opted to play for the Portugal national team after qualifying for citizenship in 2002.

And the former Iberian star said he would like to link up with Fluminense this summer.

Back home

He told Brazilian newspaper Lance: "It's been 13 years since I left Brazil for playing in Europe.

"Now I want to go back home and play in my country because I have never been able to win a title there.

"I want to return to Brazil most of all because of personal reasons but I am still in contract at Chelsea and I have to resolve that. Without I doubt I know that I owe it to my career to win a title in Brazil.

"I want to have the chance to win a Brazilian domestic league title and a Copa Libertadores as I imagine that it must be a very strong sensation.

"I expect to have my situation resolved before July 26 for being able to travel to Brazil as soon as possible."
