Chelsea target Yoshinori Muto who plays for FC TOKYO of Japan has confirmed he is critically considering his future after Chelsea made a bid of £4m to his club for his signature. According to reports, Chelsea have intensely scouted the Japanese and just last month club’s president Naoki confirmed Chelsea have followed up their interest in the player after an offer of £4m was made.
The player speaking on the reported bid was quoted to have said; “I want to think about it carefully,” Muto said. “Where can I go to develop? A team that suits me, where I can play and develop. I’m thinking about that, and for now I just want to take my time and think it through.”
However, it remains to been seen what Chelsea intend to do with the player if they eventually sign him since he is very likely to be denied a work permit.
Mourinho had refused to be drawn into discussing the reported Cheslea interest in the player when asked about it last month.
“I know a little bit about Muto,” he said. “I don’t think it’s nice for me to speak about a player who plays for FC Tokyo. If FC Tokyo coach speaks about my players I wouldn’t be happy.
“We are a football club, we want to win matches and trophies, and if we don’t believe the player is a good player or a good prospect that’s an issue for sure.”
