Jose Mourinho wants to boost his attacking options and it has been revealed that Chelsea has launched an offer in the region of €4 million for the 22 year old Japanese forward of FC Tokyo, Yoshinori Muto.
The president of FC Tokyo is Naoki Ogane and he was the person which confirmed that Chelsea is indeed interested in signing Muto with an offer that has already been launched but it remains uncertain if the player will be making a move to Stamford Bridge during the approaching summer transfer window as Yoshinori Muto has already stated that he is unsure on what to do.
"I have not decided yet at all. It is an honor for me to receive this offer from a great club," Yoshinori Muto told a website known for it's football betting (Link for online betting for UK customers).
It’s believed that the club would be willing to sell Yoshinori Muto for the fee that Chelsea has offered but now everything depends on whether or not the player actually wants to make a move to the Premier League club.
The Portuguese manager of Chelsea, Jose Mourinho already has a plethora of offensive players at his disposal and its unclear if the Japanese player would have a realistic chance in snatching a spot in the starting XI lineup of Mourinho or if Muto is simply going to be used as a substitute player.
At the young age of 22, if Muto does decide to join Chelsea he could be offloaded to other clubs in loan deals in order to gain enough experience before actually getting into the team of Jose Mourinho. The latest football betting (Link for online betting for non-UK customers) odds suggest that this is the most likely case.
It was only 2 weeks ago that Yoshinori Muto graduated from Keio University as he completed an economics degree but if he does want to make a move to Chelsea; he will have to wait until the transfer window opens up in England in June.
