Chelsea midfielder Deco has told Luiz Felipe Scolari to do whatever it takes to sign Robinho.

Scolari has been linked with a move for the Real Madrid winger and Deco believes the Brazilian is just what Chelsea need to add a touch of magic to the team.

"Robinho is a spectacular player. He's got incredible skill," Deco said. "He has magic and is capable of anything on a football pitch. His quality is amazing. It would be great if he joined us and he'd be made very welcome here."

Deco knows any top team like Chelsea will always have to put results above style but the former Barcelona star is confident he can help the Blues become more entertaining.

"Everybody wants to see good football," Deco said. "The first rule for winning football is to make sure we play well. But, for all that we'll try to play good exciting football, our opponents are always going to be trying to stop us from doing that.

"Sometimes the games won't be as spectacular as we'd like. That's just the way it is. But this team has players with great quality who can play high calibre football. It's the responsibility of all the players to play exciting football, but I'm more than happy to assume that role. I'll take on the role of making the football exciting very happily."
